Naked Fountain Family

In the center of the small city of Guelph, Ontario, a fountain is topped with an unusual tableau: a naked family leaping into the air, while a complacent frog looks on.

“The Family” is bronze sculpture dedicated to immigrants that settled in Guelph, and the scene was specifically proposed by the Italian community who commissioned artist William McElcheran to create the fountain. The sculpture commemorates the hard work of families in building the community. The frog? Unclear.
