Description

Circular fountain basin with a globe in the center and around the globe four concrete columns, from which jets spout on the globe.

On three of the four columsn are 77 bronze plates attached, showing persons, objects and buildings from Uffenheim and the different partner towns of Uffenheim and the countries where they are located: Uffenheim in Germany, Pratovecchio in Italy, Égletons in France and Kolbudy in Poland. The sculptor works on these places since 2011 and the plates for Germany, Italy and France are finished.

The various reliefs do not have any captions, making identification rather complicated. We were not able to identify all portraits and buildings. If you do recognize some, please use the contact form at the bottom of this page to inform us.
