Muses Fountain ...

View On Black

This series is of the " Fountains of the Muses - "Charafiz das Musas" - its the centrail view from the "Alley of the Palmeiras" " in the Jardim Botanico, in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil ... if you follow my stream you will see it : it is at the very end of the long " Imperial Walk " ... it has varies allegories and four muses representing Art, Music, Poetry and Science. Made in England by Herbert W. Hogg and originally put in the Lapa, center of Rio de Janeiro, was brought to the Botanical Gardens in 1905 by Joao Barbosa Rodrigues - during its restauration in 2005 the origin was found as well as other important information.

 

It is very beautiful and calm as you walk and finally reach it: the sound of the water, its beauty , all the nature and beauty of a most exoctic place - the mixture of cultures its really worth a visit. I advise to listen to the music of Mozart and see the picture large and on black. And if you can do visit! Again thanks to my dear Brasilians Friends --- and to you all contacts and friends do ENJOY!! Be Happy and Relaxed!
