The Famous Revelation Water Fountain at Chatsworth

Designed by popular English sculptor Angela Conner, "Revelation" is the newest addition to the Chatsworth ornamental exterior water features. She was commissioned by the deceased 11th Duke of Devonshire to produce a limited edition bust of Queen Elizabeth, in 2004/5 in commemoration of the Queen’s 80th birthday celebration. In 1999 Revelation was mounted in Jack Pond, one of Chatsworth’s earliest ponds. Taking the shape of four large flower petals which open and close with the circulation of water, the metallic water fountain alternately conceals and displays a gold colored globe at the heart of the sculpture. 53265ct__51863.jpg A steel globe finished with gold dust was integrated into the sculpture, which rests five meters in height and five meters wide. This newest water feature is an exciting and interesting improvement to the Gardens of Chatsworth, because the movement of flower petals is totally operated by water.
