Description

Heritage Collection marble Hochgurtel FountainThree giant half-man, half-fish figures support the first ledge. Above this ledge, four boys dance hand in hand, representing commerce, industry, science, and art, with symbolic designs displayed on their heads. Above the dancers is a second ledge decorated with flowers and birds endemic to Victoria. The dome of this design is capped by another ledge, on which is a boy holding a basket of fish on his head. It is made of Portland cement, with a frame made of stone and iron. Standing approximately 10 meters tall, the visual elements of the Heritage Collection marble Hochgurtel Fountain are intended to show the confidence and progress of the young colonies, while also indicating the purpose of the World’s Fair, which was to showcase the agricultural products and industries of various countries. In the center of the fountain, four young men (representing the young and vibrant colonies) dance beneath symbols of art, science, commerce, and industry; for example, musical instruments, a telescope, a sailing ship, a steam engine, and a globe. Above the Heritage Collection marble Hochgurtel Fountain are images of native Victorian flora and fauna, as well as a boy holding a shell. Four mermaids rise from the water in the lower pool, holding it all aloft. Built during Victoria’s boom years, the Heritage Collection marble Hochgurtel Fountain remains a stunning testimony to the glory days of wonderful Melbourne.
