I was deprived of taking any photos in the Sculpture Victorious - ie the Victorian Sculpture - show at the V&A by the No Photography rule - so no large porcelain painted Minton elephant; no marble bust of Queen Victoria, disturbingly, palpably flabby in appearance; no silvery, glittering, and hyper-kitsch trophy for the Eglinton Tournament.  Sorry - but instead, it's a rather shifty looking cherubic head in my parents' flowery garden, and, just because I thought I'd better put in some genuine Victoriana, a sculpted column from a pillar of the Henry Cole wing of the V&A (which has an amazing loggia on top: I don't think I ever remember seeing that before ...)
