Millicent Fawcett, Lavender and Another Hero

We went on a bit of a pilgrimage today to find the new statue of Millicent Fawcett, Leader of the Suffragists, in Parliament Square, the only statue to a female among eleven men!

The detail on the statue is fabulous – the fabric and folds of her coat, her leather boots, her jewellery and the stitching effect on her banner…

There was a beautiful border of bee laden Lavender just nearby.

Another of my heroes was in the square – Nelson Mandela, again with intricate detail in the bronze.
