Edward Jenner Statue in Kensington Gardens

A big bronze statue of Edward Jenner can be seen in Kensington Gardens, London, near the fountains of the Italian Gardens. The monument was sculpted 1858 by William Calder Marshall, as can be read in an inscription on the basament. A cow head is also a meaningful decoration. A bronze tablet, placed in 1996 (the bicentennial of Jenner's discovery) at the foot of the statue, remembers - among many other things - that the monument "was inaugurated by Prince Albert, the Prince Consort and the first to be erected in Kensington Gardens in 1862. The cost was met by international subscription".
