Vandkunsten Fountain
Denmark, Copenhagen

The water body was commissioned by the Københavns Kunstfond (Copenhagen Art Foundation), designed by architect Johannes Magdalia Nielsen in 1907 and opened on September 15, 1910. The central stele is made of granite with decorative details made of bronze and gilded metal. Its cylindrical lower part is decorated with fish scales, and the water flows from four fish heads - details that reflect the use of the area as a fish market in the old days. Its top is a hemisphere of polished red granite.
