Description

Originally this sculpture was supposed to be completed in bronze, but there was only enough money in the budget to cast the design in concrete. In 2010 all of the fountains in the Music Concourse were restored by Joseph Chow & Associates. The snake's head had disappeared long before and a recreation was made by artist Manuel Palos based on photos of the original.

The cast stone pool surrounding the sculpture was designed by architect Herbert A. Schmidt. The fountain was funded in the '20s with a $10,000 gift from Corrine Rideout, the widow of banker Norman Rideout.

Location

In the center of Golden Gate Park's Music Concourse
