Description
'Liverpool' sits on the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool and shows a seated woman. She represents the city of Liverpool. Around her are symbols associated with the city:

Bales of cotton - huge quantities of raw cotton were imported into the country. They were processed in Lancashire and Yorkshire, and re-exported to the world through the port of Liverpool

Propeller and a trident - represent the city's links with the sea

Palette with paint brushes and a set-square show the growing city's cultural side

Crown - looks like a medieval fort and may have referred to Liverpool's famous but long gone castle

Liver Bird - featured on the city's coat of arms.

'Liverpool' in the picture is a new statue from 1995, replacing an older version that had fallen into disrepair.

The sculptor, John Warrington Wood, created the original statue in 1877. It was commissioned and paid for by Andrew Barclay Walker to sit on top of the new art gallery he was building for Liverpool Town Council.
