    This is a small scale copy by William MacLeod of a painted ceiling in the royal residence of Hampton Court. It depicts Queen Anne surrounded by a host of personified virtues. The Queen is portrayed as Justice, with scales in one hand and a sword in the other. Above her, holding a crown, are Neptune and Britannia, representing her dominion over sea and earth. The original ceiling, located in the Queen's Drawing Room was painted by Italian artist Antonio Verrio (c.1636- 1707) who covered the walls of Hampton Court Palace with scenes drawn from Ovid's 'Metamorphoses'. Verrio worked at Hampton court for William III and Queen Anne between 1700 and 1705.
