On the western end of Westminster Bridge stands a bronze sculpture of a horse-drawn chariot driven by three women. The crowned leader of this trio holds a spear aloft in one hand, her other hand raised as if in challenge, her gaze fearless and her facial expression suggesting a grim determination.
This Victorian-era statue sculpted by artist Thomas Thornycroft represents Boadicea (also spelled Boudica or Boudicca, though Boadicea was most common when the statue was created), the warlike queen of the Celtic Iceni tribe and her daughters, who are legendary and tragic figures in ancient British history, art, and folklore.
