Upon the death of her husband Albert in 1861, Victoria went into an extended period of mourning and began wearing black clothing.

The effigy is framed with a koru design representing the royal generations past, present and future. A lattice stained-glass effect symbolises the web of territories that Queen Victoria reigned over during the early peak of the British Empire.
