The Art With A Heart

2 notes &

Our visit to St. Paul’s was wonderful. The history of England can be felt here. I absolutely love all the beautiful architecture. This is where Princess Diana and Prince Charles got married. 

ANNE was Queen when St Paul’s was built in 1710. The weather-beaten original of this 1712 sculpture by Francis Bird was replaced with a replica by Richard Belt in 1885. The figures on the base represent England, Ireland, France and North America, all of which Queen Anne laid claim to.
