Continuing with my sculptures theme.
I have just spent a frustrating afternoon trying to find some information about this charming little sculpture of a naked kneeling boy clutching two fish whose mouths form the fountain, found in Alhama De Murcia, Spain.
It is in the Garden of the Martyrs of Alhama de Murcia. This garden was formerly the original watercourse, and "la rambla de la Cruz" was built in its present form during the 1950ís. The columns give it a classical appearance and it is a popular site for locals to relax and take shade in the heat of the summer. The figure on the fountain is a reproduction of the original which disappeared mysteriously in the 1970ís and was made from old photos found in the municipal archive, and was inaugurated in 2009, restoring the gardens completely to their former splendour.
V1 is a closeup of the sculpture, V2 a slightly wider view, and V3 a wider view still, showing the columns and promenade.
Pamela.

I can readily see why this would be so appreciated given a hot Spanish summer. The shadows in V3 suggest a lovely, cool place to linger and the sound of the falling water will add to the effect, of course. You captured the details and light so well. I especially like those falling drops of water in V3.

Such a good subject with that green patination, Pamela: like all three versions equally, any one of which is worthy of the V 1 position.

Three wonderful captures of this charming sculpture, Pamela, a real pleasure to sit beside and listen to the running water whilst enjoying the glorious sunshine and warmth. Carol

Quite an interesting statue and slightly sureal. v1 has the detail but I do like the composition of v3 with the framing by the columns; water droplets; and the textures and patterns caused by the ripples.

All 3 very well shot esPECially V1, Pamela, with that amazing light and the frozen water. I had to chuckle at the scene in V1 'cos I pictured live fish and a live boy...and the boy using the poor fish as water pistols Grin
