Fountain of the elephant Catania with human elements sent on April 25, 2019 (22:39) by Sergio Bartolomeo. 24 comments, 320 views. [retina]

La fontana dell'Elefante è un'opera monumentale realizzata tra il 1735 e il 1737 dall'architetto Giovanni Battista Vaccarini. È collocata al centro della Piazza del Duomo di Catania. Il suo elemento principale è una statua di basalto nero che raffigura un elefante, chiamato comunemente u Liotru e considerato l'emblema della città siciliana. Sulla schiena dell'animale si trova un obelisco egittizzante], alto 3,66 metri, in granito. Non ha geroglifici, ma è decorato da figure di stile egizio che non costituiscono una scrittura geroglifica di senso compiuto. Sulla parte sommitale dell'obelisco sono stati montati un globo, circondato da una corona; una foglia di palma (rappresentante il martirio) e un ramo di gigli (rappresentante la purezza), più sopra una tavoletta metallica su cui vi è l'iscrizione dedicata a sant'Agata.

Excellent direct glimpse of the monument and moment Street with people who find themselves near to rest or admire the details: Curious the symblic juxlacing of the black basalt statue of the elephant in the overall architectural vision of the work: Bravo Sergio.
A great greeting and good week fone, Claudio ;-)

I am pleased, Claudio your opinion on this photo: mixed between architecture and Street. I too have always struck this coupling between the black basalt of the elephant and the white marble of the obelisk.
Monument symbol of the city of Catania, enjoys a place of honor: The center of Piazza Duomo, the focal point and lounge of the city.
Thank you so much for your passage and your opinion. ;-)
Good Weekend :-P
Sergio

Beautiful shooting ru Liotru, beautiful photo of the famous monument of Catania. I would have enlarged the scene to admire the beauty of the entire Piazza Duomo. Congratulations on the photo and good weekend.
