Breaking Barriers (detail 7)

This detail shows a female angel figure in relief painted with gold and red. Her arms are raised and wings outstretched. Around her head a bright gold halo has the words 'love that overcomes' wrapped around it. In the left background we see a newspaper photograph of Edwardian police restraining a protesting woman. To the right of the angel two metal tags dangle with the embossed words 'her' and 'best'.
