Children at Play Wall Fountain


This fountain was created by Italian sculptor, Cipriani, at the Romanelli Studio in Florence Italy. Purchased by the J. C. Nichols Company in 1965, it was installed on the exterior of the Medical Office Building on the Country Club Plaza. It is a fanciful work, approximately five foot high, of three small children playing around the head of a bearded man, with water cascading from the vase over the man's head and falling into a semicircular basin.
