Photographer's Note

Looks like a crown, made from stone, but is a fountain from end of 15th century. Kutna Hora was then a very wealthy town, because there were rich silver mines to be exploited. But digging more and more holes in the ground led to problems with the level of groundwater, and the city could not be supplied with enough water, so they had to lead water in wooden pipes from far away. The fountain was still in use until 1890, but I think not with wooden pipes anymore
