Caractacus was an early chieftain of the Britons, celebrated in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British art and literature for resisting the Romans. Dublin-born, London-based sculptor John Henry Foley cast this bronze statuette the year after his original two-metre-high version in white marble was installed in the Egyptian Hall at the Lord Mayor of London’s Mansion House residence.
