Sculptures and Statues
So many great sculptors did extraordinary work in ancient history! Luckily most of them are well preserved...
Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, Piazza Navona in Rome, Italy
Designed by Bernini.
A basin as base, of wich travertine rocks rise to support four river gods (representing four major rivers of the four continents) and above them, a copy of an Egyptian obelisk (granite).
Captured here is river god Ganges, carrying a long oar, representing the river's navigability.
