Dolphin Fountain – Fitzroy Gardens

DSC_0395

When I was researching this fountain I read that it was very controversial when it was installed in 1982 in the gardens. Apparently the site was deemed unsuitable. I can’t see why. To me it’s a wonder piece of art. There are many different animals lying on the rocks and in the water of the fountain. It’s the kind of art where the more you look, the more animals you see in the nooks and crannies and the water or, more obviously, just lying on the rocks.
