The sculpture depicting a personification of the Vistula River is located on the terrace in front of the Palace on the Isle. The stone figure sculpted by Ludwig Kaufmann was set up in 1855 on the spot of the 18th century statue of Vistula made by Tommas Righy. Vistula is shown as a semi-naked woman in a half-lying position, leaning on a row. Next to her stands a small boy (a so-called putto) holding a sheaf of grains, which alludes to the transportation of Polish grain on the Vistula River to Gdańsk for sale in Western Europe.
