This Icarus is part of an old bronze fountain, there just for our pleasure as visitors to downtown. I know... I know... but what I saw from back at the corner is across the street.

I love fountains and I do remember the story of Icarus.

I left a note on the Chair puzzle

Excellent point Toto. I'm curious, now...

Thanks Cathy-there is art of different forms all over the town, alot.

I'll have to ask her about that if she ever comes down from the mountains, Sandy! :)

Don't let Suzy see that fountain. I heard she likes to take a dip in them.

Wow! This is a spectacular fountain!! I love it!! : )

It's ironic that that the statue is a fountain considered that after he fell from the sky, Icarus drowned in the ocean. Perhaps the fountain is meant to represent the ocean . . or perhaps it is simply a fountain.

Thats an interesting view of it BrightSky. Thanks!

Hmm. I'm clearly in a cantankerous mood & don't belong on Jigidi tonight. So, no comment. Here's a photo that adds drama to it, gives it some "oommpphh," but what viewer on the sidewalk could see it that way?
