Armour Center Fountain

Description:

This fountain features a quatrefoil-shaped basin (cast concrete) lined with 1/2" tile.  The bronze sculpture is placed on a pedestal which rests on a basin (cast concrete) that fits into a larger pool.  The sculpture features a child that supports a small bird on the shoulder with his arm bent and resting near his chest.  A figure of a goose is placed beneath him and originally spouted the single jet of water.
