One of my favorites too. On my daughter's third grade Plaza Art field trip I learned the story behind that fountain, and it was just heartbreakingly sad.

I was wrong...the story I was remembering is about the Allen Memorial Fountain, which also came from Florence. It is the one of the bathing female and the child standing on a turtle. It was purchased to commemorate J.C. Nichols' daughter and grandchild who died in a house fire.
