Long Description:

This eye-catching fountain in front of the Casino Nova Scotia Fountain has a red stone basin that matches the color of the brick walkway. Within the basin are four jets that spray water towards a spherical framework of rings representing the earth. Above the sphere is a 3' high copper sculpture of the schooner Bluenose.
