The Water Features

The Water Features As originally conceived, fountains were crafted to be functional, guiding water from creeks or reservoirs to the inhabitants of towns and settlements, where the water could be used for cooking, cleaning, and drinking. The force of gravity was the power supply of water fountains up until the close of the nineteenth century, using the forceful power of water traveling down hill from a spring or creek to force the water through valves or other outlets. Inspirational and spectacular, large water fountains have been crafted as monuments in most cultures. Rough in style, the 1st water fountains didn't look much like contemporary fountains. A stone basin, crafted from rock, was the 1st fountain, used for containing water for drinking and religious functions. Pure stone basins as fountains have been uncovered from 2000 BC. The jet of water emerging from small jets was forced by gravity, the only power source creators had in those days. Drinking water was provided by public fountains, long before fountains became elaborate public statues, as attractive as they are practical. Animals, Gods, and religious figures dominated the early ornate Roman fountains, beginning to appear in about 6 BC.Water Features 4602791442296.jpg Water for the open fountains of Rome arrived to the city via a elaborate system of water aqueducts.
