A statue of the subject in naval ceremonial dress, a sword at his left side and a telescope in his left hand, atop a vaulted octagonal pavilion supported by an arcade of eight columns with decorated capitals. These are upon a pedestal with arched niches (the two side niches bearing reliefs of expedition ships stuck in Arctic Sea ice) on its four principal sides, with four flying buttresses, on each of which crouches a roaring bear, all upon a plain sloping base which is square with chamfered corners.
