Portrait of Queen Victoria
This statue of Queen Victoria was commissioned by the Chinese Community of Singapore in the year of Her Majesty's Jubilee to be placed in the Government House as a Memorial of the general affection of Her Majesty's Chinese Subjects and of their gratitude for the benefits of her rule.
The work was unveiled to the public in 1995 in a new setting on the grounds of the Istana, official residence of the Head of State of Singapore.
The work was restored before its 1995 unveiling. Apparently it needed to be restored because its nose was knocked off. Apparently this occured during some nationalist demonstration of the 1950s or 1960s but I don't have a reference to the exact date.
According to the accompanying story, the work was for many years in the Victoria Room of the Istana, renamed the State Room after independence. It was moved to Victoria Concert Hall and then the National Museum (where it was kept under wraps in the mid-1980s).
