London: Albert Memorial
The Albert Memorial is situated in Kensington Gardens, London, England, directly to the north of the Royal Albert Hall. It was commissioned by Queen Victoria in memory of her beloved husband, Prince Albert who died of typhoid in 1861. The memorial was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the Gothic Revival style.
At the corners of the central area there are allegorical sculpture representing the continents. The Asia group, including ethnographic figures and a large elephant, was design by John Henry Foley.
