Built in 1911 by Sir Aston Webb to honor Queen Victoria, this edifice located in front of Buckingham Palace is sometimes called "The Wedding Cake" because of its tiered shape. The sculptures around the plinth showing Queen Victoria, Charity, the Angel of Justice and the Angel of Truth were created by the sculptor Sir Thomas Brock. The monument is a popular resting spot for tourists touring the Mall and the Palace.
