Angel in the Snow (Tony Bowell) between Brighton and Hove on the Seafront

Angel in the Snow - Tony Bowell

The Peace Statue or locally called the Angel a memorial to King Edward VII  by Newbury Trent in 1920 marks the boundary between Brighton and Hove for day-trippers walking along the seafront. The familiar view is the side view of the angel on her high plinth, often as a silhouette because of the bright sun. It is extremely similar to another Angel by the same sculptor at New Barnet in London with beneath it the names of those who fought and died in World War 1

The Peace Statue in Brighton holds an olive branch and an orb.
