The Fountain of the Muses was brought in 1895 by Barbosa Rodrigues. It was designed by Herbert W. Hogg, at Derby, England, in the late nineteenth century.
Cast in iron it have several allegories including four females figures representing poetry, music, science and art.
The Fountain is placed in the center of Rio de Janeiro Botanical Garden. Since I have some fountains photos, I'm creating a open theme related with that.

Very classy and elegant presentation of this beautiful fountain. Without its green surroundings it could not look the same which for me is a great plus from the artistic side. Amazing picture achieved. Well done!

The Fountain of the Muses is a very attractive classical Romanesque like art piece, contrasting with the bright green surrounding tones of Nature.
