Queen Victoria is portrayed in dignified middle age, standing on a high plinth. She wears a heavy dress and cloak and holds the orb and sceptre, the symbols of her authority. There was early contention about the site. The current site was agreed in 1904, then abandoned for an alternative site by the Art Gallery. In 1912 it returned to the current position.
