triton speaks

I’ve been trying to highlight some of the most iconic structures you’ll see on the UM Ann Arbor campus. This fountain of Triton, the messenger god of the deep with his children is elaborate in expressing its structure’s fine points. One of the most important carvings is the twisted conch shell of Triton with which he blows to raise or calm the waves. Its a beautiful sight indeed and the fountain truly expresses this imagery.
