Polaroid of the week: Little bronze girl at fountain | Asheville, North Carolina

Polaroid of the week: Little bronze girl at fountain | Asheville, North Carolina

..polaroid of the week usa north carolina asheville waterfountain girlAsheville, NC is an artistic community, and we managed to see dozens of sculptures around town during our short time in the area. Only afterward we found out that the sculptures were part of the ‘Urban Trail’, an art trail created during the early 1990s to improve the town’s image through the display of public art. Visitors can actually follow the 1.7 mile trail while listening to a self-guided tour that explains the story behind each exhibit, each one representing history, culture and people of Asheville. Along the way, you pass pigs and turkeys, a bronze fiddler, a cat and an eagle. The young girl drinking from the horse-head fountain is supposed to resemble the childhood of Asheville’s older generations who might have drunk from a similar fountain back in the day.

Asheville is gorgeous, I am lucky enough to live close enough to see artwork like this :) I've personally taken my own shots of this statue!
