A group of statuary forming a 3-tiered garden fountain in a lily-pond. A standing
nude female figure flanked by 2 winged prancing steeds is being offered gifts by
maidens rising from shells, with nymphs in various attitudes of play, at the lower
hevel, independent of the drama above, the group being bounded at the rear by 4 Doric
columns carrying ball finials. Author unknown. The statuary was acquired by
Twickenham Borough Council with Fork House, from the estate of Sir Ratan-Tata in 1922.
