STATUE OF NEPTUNE BESTRIDING A DOLPHIN

DESCRIPTION + /

A statue situated in a "T" shaped ornamental canal at Westbury Court Gardens. The statue is probably early to mid 17th century, on a base probably dating to 1715 to 1725. It is constructed of stone on an aslar base. It depicts a staue of Neptune, with the left foot of Neptune resting on a dolphin, the left arm holding the tail. The style of the piece is that of Nicholas Stone. A family tradition in the Colchester Family (the builders of the Gardens) suggests that the statue was found by Maynard Colchester The Second, some time after 1715, and erected at Westbury Cout.
