A fountain with symbolic significance
Sometimes our copper smith handles special objects or works of art. Two copper fountains were made for the 't Loo Palace in Apeldoorn.
The fountains have a symbolic significance. They symbolise the heavens and the earth. The continents are engraved in the globe. The port cities are shown with gilded buttons, some of which spout water. The engravings in the celestial globe represent the zodiac. This sphere also has a gilded galaxy on it. The most important stars spray water.
