Discobolus: The Discus Thrower Sculpture
Discobolus: The Discus Thrower used to grace the country mansion 'Amerfoot' in Potten End, Hemel Hempstead. It was bought by the New Town Development Corporation in 1960 and once stood in the Marlowes but was later moved to its current location in the Water Gardens. It is a bronze copy of a 5th century Greek marble original.
