Faces On The Fountain

20191024_214916.jpg

One wild drinking fountain in Barcelona beckons, when time comes to slake your thirst.

Three human faces, appearing as if in a masquerade, frame the fountain’s taps .

Above them a supine lion crouches beneath an armoured crest -paws, claws and all.

The whole shebang elevates a utilitarian water dispensary into an artful world.

Sustenance for the imagination as well as the body.

And that lion sure looks like he could do with a drink…
