Description:

A Plaza courtyard is the setting of Pomona, the Roman goddess and protector of vineyards and orchards. This fountain was imported from Italy and installed in 1969. The life-size bronze figure of Pomona is elevated on a shallow saucer, which rests upon a polished marble pedestal. The pedestal sits in the center of the reflecting basin of red stone. A water curtain cascades from the bowl into the pool. Additional water shoots from spray rings in the basin that is lighted at night. A marble original stands in the King's palace in Bangkok, Thailand.
