During my last visit to San Francisco, I took pictures of what I thought were some interesting things. This is one:
It’s a statue. It’s a water fountain. It felt like a maze of sorts.
To give you an idea of its size...if you look closely, you'll see my son back in the shadows in the fountain, off center on the right. My son is 6'10".
The statue intrigued me, so I took a picture of it. I think it’s a cool statue/fountain and I wonder about the person who thought it up.
How did he or she come up with the idea? Did he oversee the construction? Did she have to make adjustments as it was put together? How many versions did he draw out before deciding on this one? How old was she when she came up with the idea? Was he formally trained? Who influenced him? Does she ever come back and look at her creation? What else has this artist created?
What do you think about this fountain/statue?
