The strange things you find in a river (or pond) (Part 2)

Which Hindu goddess is she?

This maybe isn’t so much strange as unusual! She was found in one of the ponds in Sydenham Wells Park, but we are not sure who she is. Can anyone help? We don’t know how long she has been there or where she came from, but we put her back carefully the same day.

  1. Dear Jess,

    I recall we found something similar on a Quaggy walk which we put back. I think it maybe a representation of an Indian goddess associated with rivers/water, maybe someone like Ganga?
    If anyone comes up with a true identity, be sure to update.

    Keep up the good work.

    Regards,

    David Ford

    • Hi David, I agree, we’ve found similar things in the river Ravensbourne and I we figured it was something like that which is why we always put them back. We’ll write something here is we find out who it is.

      Best, Jess
