The Deluge Fountain

  Park im. Kazimierza Wielkiego     more than a year ago
This dramatic biblical fountain portraying animals and people trying to escape the Deluge is a reconstruction of a 1904 work by German sculptor Ferdinand Lepcke, also responsible for the famous Łuczniczka sculpture. The original, designed for a competition, met its demise during WWII, when the Nazis decided to melt the 9 tons of bronze down for military purposes - though a copy survived in Lepcke’s hometown, Coburg. Reconstruction works started in 2004, and the fountain was resurrected piece by piece until the final result was officially unveiled in 2014.
