Twickenham - Escaping from the ice

By Eden    
The marble figures appear to be clambering up the rocks to escape the freezing water on this icy December day. This fountain and its marble sculptures are situated in a park on the banks of the river Thames in Twickenham.

I missed this one....what an incredible place! Super capture, I keep looking at them and am thinking you are going to tell us that actually you hired some models to create this shot. Do you know any thing about the sculpture or who commissioned them?

Thanks Rosiebobo
This sculpture is supposedly Italian (artist unknown) and was brought from Surrey to Twickenham in 2009. They represent Oceanides or sea nymphs.
Best wishes Eden
