Fountain of Muses & Freebie!

I believe this to be one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen.

And I have found out where it is...let me take you there.

It is called "The Fountain of Muses".

And located in Brazil.

At the Botanical Gardens in Rio.

This "Fountain of Muses" was made in England in the 19th century by Herbert W. Hogg.

 Along with the angels, he featured the muses of poetry, music, science and art.

The fountain was brought to the Botanical Garden from its original location in Largo da Lapa in 1895.

I wanted to be able to make this picture come alive somehow.
So I designed a blog button with the animated water and added some sound effects to this post.

Please feel free to display this button on your blog.  

The petals from heaven are saying to me today...

"Life is short,

       Be kind."
