Achilles...

Achilles...




























Welcome to Hyde Park, London where I took a closer look at the huge statue/monument of 'Achilles' placed in honour of the Duke of Wellington and his victories. The statue is actually cast from cannons that took part in the battles/war.

If we take a look at photograph (below) we see the naked Achilles standing upon an impressive tiered plinth surrounded by beautiful stone bollards linked with chain.

A huge plinth...




























Looking at the stone bollard (below) we can see it is cylindrical/circular in shape which tapers towards a solid central column tapering outwards with a slanted top edge with a semi flat minor peaked top.
