Carl Linnaeus, otherwise known, following his enoblement, as Carl von Linné - you'll see that the famous taxonomic botanist, naturalist, physician, is holding a bunch of flowers in his left hand. Probably one of the most significant figures in science - the botanist's equivalent of Einstein perhaps. There's a very full article about him in Wikipedia. His statue stands in front of Kungliga Biblioteken, Stockholm.
Having a few days in Northumberland - connection a bit dodgy!
