Thames Head Statue, St
Statue. 1854 by Raffaelle Monti, modelled for the Crystal Palace in cement
and signed 'R Monti' on the base. A semi-reclining figure of the river god
with symbolic objects. He holds a shovel which represents the work of the
navvies (navigators) and at his feet are bales and a barrel to symbolise the
river's contribution to commerce. The statue was originally sited at the
headwaters of the Thames in Trewsbury Mead, near Coates, Gloucester until
moved to its present site on the lockside in 1974.
