Another fountain from the studios of Motto and Rebeck, this work was exhibited at the Builder’s Exhibition at the Wigmore Coliseum in February 1916.  The Cleveland Topics reported:  “The most notable fountain of the exposition is from the studios of Motto and Rebeck, 11634 Euclid Avenue.  This shows a slim Italian lad with a water carrier’s skin about his shoulders and with the simple grace of youth.”
