Admire the Albert Gate Stags

Guarding the Albert Gate to Hyde Park are two bronze stags which we are told once graced the Piccadilly entrance to the Deputy Ranger's Lodge in Green Park.

Apparently designed by Peter Turnerelli, and based on prints by Bartolozzi, the stags stand on tall plinths, which are attached to the garden walls of the adjoining buildings.
