This highly stylized fountain mounts to a wall, spilling water into a pool below (not included). The figure is made of painted fiberglass, and was made in the "Art Deco Revival" period of the 1980s. There are five outlets for water: the woman's right elbow, each of her hands, her left foot, and the fish's mouth. Tubes would be fed in through the back side, hooked to an external pump. The wall is surrounded by stone tiles, and a metal mesh trim for mounting. The body is in good structural condition, with no damage or breaks. There is overall surface wear and water staining from previous use. The imagery is fantastic, and should be a great feature to any water installation. Signed by the artist Genie Riley in lower left corner.
