A Story in Stone

Above the entrance to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council is this sculpture depicting king John handing the Magna Carter to the Barons at Runnymede.
The building was constructed in the early 1900's which surprised me as it appears similar to those around it at Westminster.

Quite a serious looking group to be looking down on those entering the building.

I would not have expected this fine frieze to be from the early 1900s, either.
