From a concrete pool a central column rises, supporting a tazza-like basin from the centre of which rises another column supporting a ceramic figure. The cast iron is decorated with lily leaves, scallop shells and dolphins. The ceramic figure is white, unglazed (similar to Parian ware) and shows a girl seated on a rock outcrop cushioned with a sheaf of corn. She is pouring from an urn into a cup, and has a basket by her left foot.
