The Mercury Fountain in Leeuwarden dates from 1923. Mercury, the mythological Roman god of commerce, travel and profit can be seen on top of the pedestal.
The sculptor Professor G.A. Bredow (1875-1953) from Stuttgart was commissioned to portray the city of Leeuwarden important themes such as agriculture, livestock, fisheries, trade and traffic.
I like the man and his bull representing animal husbandry.
I think I'd rather see traditional fountains with sculptures than the modern waterworks I showed you last Sunday.
