Wall Fountains: The Minoan Civilization

Wall Fountains: The Minoan Civilization Various sorts of conduits have been unveiled through archaeological excavations on the isle of Crete, the birthplace of Minoan civilization. These delivered water and removed it, including water from waste and storms. The primary materials employed were stone or clay. There were terracotta pipes, both circular and rectangle-shaped as well as pathways made from the same components. Amidst these were clay conduits that were U shaped or a shorter, cone-like form which have only appeared in Minoan society.Wall Fountains: Minoan Civilization 5286823354463252743.jpg Clay pipes were used to distribute water at Knossos Palace, running up to three meters directly below the flooring.

The Genesis Of Outdoor Fountains

The Genesis Of Outdoor Fountains A water fountain is an architectural piece that pours water into a basin or jets it high into the air in order to provide drinking water, as well as for decorative purposes.Genesis  Outdoor Fountains 7489856658.jpg

Pure functionality was the original role of fountains. Cities, towns and villages made use of nearby aqueducts or springs to supply them with drinking water as well as water where they could bathe or wash. Up until the nineteenth, fountains had to be higher and closer to a water supply, such as aqueducts and reservoirs, in order to take advantage of gravity which fed the fountains. Serving as an element of adornment and celebration, fountains also generated clean, fresh drinking water. Roman fountains often depicted images of animals or heroes made of bronze or stone masks. During the Middle Ages, Muslim and Moorish garden designers included fountains in their designs to re-create the gardens of paradise. Fountains played a significant role in the Gardens of Versailles, all part of French King Louis XIV’s desire to exert his power over nature. The Romans of the 17th and 18th centuries manufactured baroque decorative fountains to glorify the Popes who commissioned them as well as to mark the location where the restored Roman aqueducts entered the city.

Indoor plumbing became the key source of water by the end of the 19th century thereby restricting urban fountains to mere decorative elements. Fountains using mechanical pumps instead of gravity helped fountains to provide recycled water into living spaces as well as create unique water effects.

Nowadays, fountains adorn public spaces and are used to recognize individuals or events and fill recreational and entertainment needs.
