The Niobid statues from the Uffizi Gallery, arranged in the pediment of a temple, to tell the story of Niobe, with Niobe under the apex, clasping one of her daughters to her and defying Latona, six other figures on each side, in order of height, looking upwards and rushing or gesturing towards her; an inset below showing a classical temple with the pediment. With a text in Italian giving the history of the statues and explaining Cockerell's reasons for arranging the figures as he has.
