Statue of Gog in London Guildhall
Statue of Gog in London Guildhall
At the northern end of the Guildhall are statues of Magog and Gog (Magog is a few feet to the left of Gog).Magog and Gog were two giants who were (allegedly) defeated by Brutus and chained to the gates of his palace on the site of Guildhall. The original statues were destroyed in the Fire of London. Their replacements were lost in the Blitz, and the current two were carved by David Evans in 1953.
