Boudica

Bloodily flow’d the Tamesa rolling phantom bodies of horses and men;
Then a phantom colony smoulder’d on the refluent estuary;

Zahra Modern Art Foundries' Boudica, Houses of Parliament, Westminster, SW1A

Lastly yonder yester-even, suddenly giddily tottering–
There was one who watch’d and told me–down their statue of Victory fell.

Alfred Lord Tennyson’s Boadicea (1859)
