Top 10 Most Creative Water Fountains Around the World



Water fountains have a long place in our history. Dating back to the Ancient Roman times, these reservoirs were first designed with a purely  practical purpose—for holding precious drinking water and bathing. These early fountains were uncovered, free standing, and placed along the street for public consumption. (Wealthier folks also had them in their homes.) Of course, like many things the Romans did, they added some ornamental elements to their creations and started a tradition that carries on today. 

Now, water fountains have a decorative place in our culture. Artists and architects approach them first and foremost as sculptures with elements of water in them. This liquid addition creates playful public art that delights and even surprises us. One popular concept is everyday things blown up as larger than life.
