Father Time



Figure of Father Time from the monument to Dame Ann Henniker in Rochester cathedral.

The sculptor is Thomas Banks and the medium not marble as you might think but Coade Stone- a ceramic with hard-wearing properties- perfected in the late 18th century and used mainly for garden statuary and architectural ornament.
