One of the four river gods (representing the River Plate), on the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi or "Fountain of the Four Rivers" in Rome, Italy, located in the Piazza Navona. It was designed in 1651 by Gian Lorenzo Bernini for Pope Innocent X whose family palace, the Palazzo Pamphili, faced onto the piazza as did the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone of which Innocent was the sponsor.,

The base of the fountain is a basin from the centre of which travertine rocks rise to support four river gods and above them, an ancient Egyptian obelisk surmounted with the Pamphili family emblem of a dove with an olive twig. Collectively, they represent four major rivers of the four continents through which papal authority had spread: the Nile representing Africa, the Danube representing Europe, the Ganges representing Asia, and the Plate representing the Americas.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Light of the Gods' and 'Reaching for the Heavens'.

Best wishes,
Philip
