Cherokee and 71st Fountain

Cherokee and 71st 001

Location:  Cherokee Drive and W 71st Street, Prairie Village, KS

Found:  June 18, 2014

This fountain is found on the traffic island formed where Cherokee Drive forks off of West 71st Street.  The fountain features a cherub or angel holding what I think is a fish.  The water for the fountain comes out of the fish’s mouth.  There are three fauns, or satyrs, sitting around the bowl of the fountain and then the water falls into the basin below.  The basin had very little water in it when I took the picture.  A lion’s head can be found at the base of the fountain.  There are nice flowers and plants planted around the basin and a small tree grows behind the fountain.

If this fountain has a particular name, I have not been able to find it.  Therefore, I have named it after the streets.

Four Fauns Fountain

Four Fauns 001

Location:  314 Nichols Road, Country Club Plaza, Kansas City, MO

Found:  July 20, 2013

A small rectangular pool with a faun sitting at each corner blowing a stream of water into the pool.  A couple of nearby benches allows people to sit and take a break of the nearby busy Plaza sidewalk.  This fountain is located a little ways West of the Allen Memorial Fountain.  It is right next to the MAC Cosmetics store and West of Starbucks.
