Experts advise that the typical garden fountain undergoes a thorough scrubbing every 3-4 months. The first step is to empty out all of the water. Then use a soft towel and gentle cleanser to scrub the inside. If there are any little grooves, work with a toothbrush to reach each and every spot. Any soap residue that remains on your fountain can damage it, so be sure it is all rinsed off.

Numerous organisms and calcium deposits may get inside the pump, so it is advised to take it apart and clean it completely. Letting it soak in vinegar for a couple of hours first will make it much easier to clean. Build-up can be a big headache, so use mineral or rain water over tap water, when possible, to reduce this dilemma.

Finally, be sure to have a quick look at your fountain every day and add water if you notice that the level is depleted. Allowing the water level to get too low can cause damage to the pump - and you certainly do not want that!

Kouros figures, sculptures of young, handsome male or female (kore) Greeks, made up the greater part of the sculptures. The kouroi were considered by the Greeks to typify beauty and were sculpted with one foot leading and an uncompromising stiffness to their forward-facing poses; the male statues were always strapping, brawny, and unclothed. Life-sized versions of the kouroi appeared beginning in 650 BC. A significant age of transformation for the Greeks, the Archaic period brought about more forms of government, expressions of art, and a higher comprehension of people and cultures outside of Greece. The Arcadian battles, the Spartan penetration of Samos, and other wars between city-states are good examples of the types of battles that occurred frequently, which is consistent with other times of historical change.
