The Burghers of Calais Outside The Palace of Westminster
Les Bourgeois de Calais is one of the most famous sculptures by Auguste Rodin, completed in 1889. It is a monument to an occurrence in 1347 during the Hundred Years' War, when Calais, an important French port on the English Channel, was under siege by the English for over a year. This cast, made in 1908, stands in Victoria Tower Gardens in the shadow of the Houses of Parliament which can be seen in the background behind the sculpture.
