The Statue of Cecil Rhodes was erected at Company’s Garden in Cape Town in 1908. It features a full body replica of Rhodes wearing a three-piece suit, standing with his left hand raised and pointing North.
The Monument is located in the Company’s Garden on a secondary axis of the Iziko South African Museum. The original plan was to use the Statue as a visual landmark at the top of Adderley Street; however, Sir Herbert Baker objected to the placement of the statue at the top of Adderley Street because of the scale of the Statue. His concern was that the Statue could have a dwarfing effect on the Cathedral or other Monuments in the vicinity. Due to a lack of consensus as to where the Statue should be placed by Baker and Francis Masey, the statue was placed in the Company's Garden instead of on Adderley Street.
