The figures at the four corners of the base are: Falstaff (nearest), Lady Macbeth, Hamlet and Prince Hal(not visible in this photo). The visible quotations on the drum of the statue read: "Goodnight Sweet Prince, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest" from Hamlet and "Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more" from Macbeth.
