Forsyth Park Fountain Basin

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 11 February 2020 in Art & Design and Portfolio.

The fountain, as originally designed and installed, incorporates four spouting triton figures carrying shell horns (representing the mythological Greek messenger of the sea, half man and half fish), positioned on blocks at the immediate base of its lower pedestal. These have since been repositioned in the basin.

Photo captured October 8, 2019.
