The Genesis Of Wall Fountains

A fountain, an amazing piece of engineering, not only supplies drinking water as it pours into a basin, it can also launch water high into the air for a noteworthy effect.

The primary purpose of a fountain was originally strictly practical. Residents of cities, townships and small towns used them as a source of drinking water and a place to wash, which meant that fountains had to be linked to nearby aqueduct or spring. Until the late nineteenth, century most water fountains operated using gravity to allow water to flow or jet into the air, therefore, they needed a source of water such as a reservoir or aqueduct located higher than the fountain. Fountains were not only utilized as a water source for drinking water, but also to adorn homes and celebrate the artist who created it. Bronze or stone masks of animals and heroes were commonly seen on Roman fountains. To depict the gardens of paradise, Muslim and Moorish garden planners of the Middle Ages added fountains to their designs. Fountains played a considerable role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exercise his power over nature. To mark the entryway of the restored Roman aqueducts, the Popes of the 17th and 18th centuries commissioned the building of baroque style fountains in the spot where the aqueducts entered the city of Rome

Since indoor plumbing became the standard of the day for clean, drinking water, by the end of the 19th century urban fountains were no longer needed for this purpose and they became purely decorative. Impressive water effects and recycled water were made possible by replacing the power of gravity with mechanical pumps.

These days, fountains decorate public spaces and are used to honor individuals or events and fill recreational and entertainment needs.Contemporary Statues Early Greece 3351658716.jpg

Contemporary Statues in Early Greece

Historically, most sculptors were compensated by the temples to decorate the involved columns and archways with renderings of the gods, however as the era came to a close it became more accepted for sculptors to portray ordinary people as well because many Greeks had begun to think of their institution as superstitious rather than sacred. Portraiture, which would be acknowledged by the Romans upon their annexation of Greek civilization became traditional as well, and wealthy family members would often commission a portrait of their forebears to be situated in enormous familial tombs. It is wrong to think that the arts had one function during The Classical Greek period, a time period of innovative accomplishment during which the use of sculpture and alternative art forms evolved. Greek sculpture was actually a modern part of antiquity, whether the cause was religious fervor or aesthetic satisfaction, and its modern quality might be what endears it to us today.
