Pegasus Fountain - Mirabell Gardens, Salzburg, Austria The Mirabell Gardens were featured in the world-famous musical, the Sound of Music. Do you remember Maria and the children were seen dancing around the statue of Pegasus and throughout the gardens singing 'Do-Re-Mi'?
Liverpool, England, 1897. In memory of her Majesty's Diamond Jubilee - Queen Victoria. On the fountain pedestal is a Salamander, a motif used by the designer Macfarlane. It represents those who pass through the fires of passion and of this world without stain. Therefore, it stands for chastity, loyalty, impartiality, virginity, courage, Jesus, Mary, and the faithful. Also used to symbolize the flames, which it passes through, and so is a symbol of fire, temptation, and burning desire.
