Description

Sculpture of a boy riding on a large fish.

Annotation

In 1939, the City organized a competition for two fountains to be placed by the small water pool in the Esplanadi park. Following the competition, Viktor Jansson was commissioned to make the fountains on the basis of his drafts of 'Leikki' (Play) and 'Hei vaan'. They were completed and cast in bronze in 1940 but were only unveiled on 15 May 1942.
