The 24' fountain rests on a stone base 2 1/2' high in a 30' diameter pool of water. At the base, 4 cherubs ride dolphins that spray water into the pool. The cherubs hold seashells in one hand. The middle basin is 10' diameter and above it are 3 cherubs; the third basin is 7' in diameter above which is a 7 1/2' female figure. She is looking down and holds a jug of pouring water in her left arm. Note: a similar fountain is located in Halifaz, Nova Scotia. It too was purchased from J.W.
