The River, locally known as The Floozie in the Jacuzzi is an artwork in Victoria Square, Birmingham, England.
An international design competition was held for a central water feature in the square, which was won by Dhruva Mistry. Construction commenced in 1992 and was completed in 1994, when the square was officially reopened by Diana, Princess of Wales.
Mistry’s fountain is the largest sculptural piece in the square and consists of four sets of works named River, Guardians, Youth and Object Variations, representing youth and eternity.
The Building in the background is the Council House, the home of Birmingham City Council.
