Thames River Festival

In a few days, the Thames River Festival will begin in London. This year, as part of a promotion of the arts, there will be ten or so works by kids from around the world on the theme of rivers (Rivers of the World). When I was in front of the Tate Modern recently, I saw one example of the series:
Battle of Hydaspes
Students from the Government Girls' High School, Pind Dadan Khan, Jhelum district, Pakistan, created scenes in clay of the historical battle of Hydaspes between Alexander of Macedon and Porus. These were then cast in plaster and placed one above the other. Ayesha Zulfiqar and Umar Hameed supervised the students.
