The movement is raised on white marble rockwork centered by an ormoulu fountain cast with bull rushes and a dolphin mask and is flanked by the figures of a River God and Diana in full relief. The elliptical base, of breakfront outline, is fitted with an ormoulu plaque depicting an allegorical scene. The conforming stepped base is surrounded by an ormoulu laurel wreath border.
