Statue of Isaac Newton in the chapel of Trinity College, Cambridge.
William Wordsworth was an admirer of Newton. His room in the neighbouring St. John's College, Cambridge overlooked the antechapel of Trinity College. And he mentioned this statue in his third book of 'The Prelude' about his life at Cambridge.
And from my pillow, looking forth by light Of moon or favouring stars, I could behold The antechapel where the statue stood Of Newton with his prism and silent face, The marble index of a mind for ever Voyaging through strange seas of Thought, alone.
