Submitted is a detailed realistic life size cast bronze water fountain sculpture of a 6' tall middle aged' man holding an umbrella , wearing a trench coat and hat ,with a duck by his side. It is raining inside the umbrella while the man is looking in wonder of how can this be? -while the duck is looking happy as a goose. Being rained on to some, is a negative connotaion, but rain is a very positive and beautiful thing in nature and is the ''lifeblood'' of all living things. Being rained on in many cultures means the cleansing and purification of ones soul. The sculpture will feature an elegant 18' diameter water pool embellished with flowers and other plants with the sculpture on a platform in the middle . It will have a self contained water pump making the umbrella rain, plus self contained lights for night viewing.
