Antigua, Guatemala: Breasts


Mermaid fountain, Central Park, Antigua, Guatemala. April 2016.



There is a fountain in Antigua's Central Park in which there are stone women who hold their breasts aloft so that the fountain's water can soar forth through their nipples.

When I look at this statue's facial expression, I imagine her thoughts: "There is no dignity here. And I have a bird on my head."

Evidently, the women are mermaids.
