"Deepwater Sponger" statue at The Boathouse at Rocketts LandingThere is a new sculpture in Richmond at Rocketts Landing. “Deepwater Sponger” was lowered into place Thursday. The cast iron figure is a short and stout sort, toting two weights and rests on a bed of concrete that is in the shape of machinery cogs.

The statue is part of a series calling attention to the global threat to the world’s fresh water. It is scheduled to be in Richmond for at least two years.  See more photos and information on the statue at Richmond on the James.
