Meyer Circle Sea Horse Fountain 8x10 Color Print

Free Shipping!

Purchased by J. C. Nichols in Venice, Italy in the early 1920’s – the sculpture dates to 1700’s. The fountain is named for the three mythological sea horses perched atop the stone pyramid. The horses support a fluted saucer which has a carved lion’s head which spouts water as the saucer fills. The middle tier has three cherubs holding an identical smaller saucer. The top tier is a sculpture of two cherubs holding a saucer. The original statue had a child riding a dolphin, but vandalism in 1960 forced the Park Board to change to a saucer top. The lower jet of water is very forceful with the upper and smaller jets creating a mist when a small breeze blows.

This 8 x 10 print from my original watercolor painting of the Meyer Circle Sea Horse Fountain will be enjoyed by everyone who has driven past it on Ward Parkway.
