Admiral Nelson's order in Trafalgar
The Death of Nelson, by John Edward Carew
Caught my attention the black sailor in the sculpture and even having his left foot on another fallen sailor, presumably white. He carries a firearm. If we think that this sculpture was delivered in 1849 this is something really amazing. It may not be coincidence that the sculptor is Irish.
The other sculptures of Nelson's Column show clasical Apollonian figures, but it has enough strength in his drama.
