Additional Details:
“Fountain of the Muses” by the Swedish-American sculptor Carl Milles installed in the Restaurant of the Metropolitan Museum of Art This fountain was inspired by the story of the goddess Aganippe, who frequented a spring on the road leading up Mount Helicon in Greece. From the Spring of Aganippe gushed waters of inspirations, which five of the fountain figures, representing the arts, have just been drinking. Filled with enthusiasm, they are rushing home, each artist carrying his symbol with him.
