Queen Philippa, Patroness, supported Eglesfield in the foundation of the College and gave the College a number of estates. The artist, Murray possibly used the wooden effigy in the college as a template. He follows the hairstyle and cut of the dress of her tomb effigy at Westminster Abbey. Through the archway Philippa is pointing to the medieval buildings of the College.
