Nightingale is represented as though walking the wards of the Scutari Hospital, with her lamp in her right hand, whilst her left gathers her skirts. Four reliefs decorate the pedestal, beginning chronologically at the back, with a scene at the War Office in 1854. Sidney Herbert rises to greet Florence Nightingale, who is accompanied by two similarly dressed women. Around the table at which Herbert has been sitting are gathered a number of military men. On the right side of the pedestal is a scene in the Hospital at Scutari. Nightingale leads an elderly military gentleman on a tour of the wards. The setting of the scene on the front of the pedestal replicates that on the front of the Sidney Herbert Memorial. Nightingale stands at the top of the steps of the Herbert Hospital at Woolwich, whilst wounded soldiers are brought in.
