The Fountain of the Frog - Sculpture Detail, Diagonal Av., Barcelona

The Fountain of the Frog or Font de la Granota Sculpture Detail ,Diagonal Av., Barcelona [enlarge]

This is a detail of what is known as Font de la Granota (fountain of the frog) on the corner of Diagonal Avenue and Corsega street. You don't see it here but the hands belong to a little boy who is lying on top as if by the bank of a river holding a frog or rather squeezing it to make water pour from its mouth. It was sculpted by Josep Campeny i Santamaria (Igualada, 1858 - Barcelona, 1922) in 1912. To have an idea check this low quality image of the fountain.
