This can be seen in the Anglican Cathedral in Kingstown, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. It was comissioned by Queen Victoria to honor one of her children, but when she saw that the angel was not dressed in white she was not amused. It sat in a storeroom for a while and was then given to St. Vincent the way you might give unfashionable clothing to a poor relation. St. Vincent made a virtue of what might have been a snub. You should go look at it when you visit Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
