Goddess of the Spring

Goddess 001

Location:  Mission Drive and West 55th Street, Mission Hills, KS

Found:  June 28, 2015

Across the street from the Mission Hills Country Club and Golf Course on a traffic island at the intersection of Mission Drive and West 55th sits the Goddess of the Spring.  The goddess looks to be carrying items on or in a large seashell while standing on an even larger shell.  The water comes out of that shell and falls into the pool below.  Flowers, shrubs and small trees surround the fountain.  The goddess keeps an eye on the golf course across the street.

I have been told that this fountain is named Goddess of the Spring but I have been unable so far to find anything to verify that so that is the name I am going with.  Should I ever find different, I will change the name.

    Dear Sir,

    We have good reasons to believe this is the Roman Goddess POMONE the Goddess of fruit etc. We own a bronze statuette of the same Goddess.

  2. This is not Flora of Maya of Spring. Rather Pomone
