Description
The Diana Fountain is crowned by a bronze statue of a goddess (maybe Arethusa, the waterer) on a marble and stone fountain, surrounded by bronzes of four boys, four water nymphs and four shells. It is part of an approach through Bushy Park towards Hampton Court Palace in London, with the water forming a large (120 metre) roundabout linking Lime and Chestnut Avenues.

This statue was designed in 1637 by Hubert Le Sueur for Henrietta Maria, wife of King Charles I. Le Sueur invoiced for a sum of GBP 200. Estimates for an equivalent cost today (2012) start at around GBP 30,000 and go up from there. The statue and fountain were restored in 2009 as part of the Bushy Park Restoration Project.
