Description

Two-piece fountain object: a gilt concrete cuboid suggests a mental connection to a monument pedestal or table. It is so undercut that it seems to hover ten centimeters above the ground. In the middle of the 'gold bloc' a gold disc is inserted with a tiny opening, from which just so much water streams that a small pool is formed. The second part of the artwork is stainless steel strip with text on the history of the public utility services. A sitting female figure in bronze guards this fountain.
