On the Newcastle side of the Millenium Bridge, is the river god, a bonze figur on a steel column, which overlooks the tyne. It was commisioned from Andre Wallace in 1996 .
The River God is a male figure with a torso and head only. He sits on top of a steel column apparently blowing at the "Siren". The figure is patinated brown and holds a staff and chain.
