I admire this statue of Richard III, showing him as the warrior he was. I think it may come closest to the real man - he must have been a fierce fighter. This photo is the best of the statue I have seen so far - I've been there, with all the trees and hedges it is very tricky to take a decent picture, let alone a brilliant one like this.
