Synopsis

Richmond on Thames has two River Gods, identical reclining nudes in middle age, who pour the river waters out from urns.
They are made of an artificial stone, Coade stone, developed at the end of the eigtheenth century to satisfy a demand for garden ornaments. This video celebrates their improbable dignity and resilience.
