Also Known As : Fountain for Karlovy Vary
Sculptor: © Jan Kotek
Description: This 3.10m tall two tiered
bronze fountain sprays out thermal water. Despite being "untitled" by the sculptor it is often referred
to as the Crying fountain. The two faced fountain symbolises eternal life, with the open eyed woman on one side
representing day, while the close eyed man on the other side representing night. Above the faces are two
snakes peering out from amongst some fruit.
