Columbus, Indiana is known for its very large numbers of public art display pieces. One beautiful piece is the centerpiece of a pretty fountain in the Northwest quadrant of the Bartholomew County Courthouse Square.
The limestone dolphin in the center of the fountain was sculpted by Indiana artist C.R. Schiefer. It was placed in 1978, a replacement for the original statue that was vandalized in 1976. Schiefer also has animal sculptures displayed in Martinsville, Bloomington and Terre Haute. His works are listed in the Smithsonian Art Inventories Catalog.

Umm, what language is that? Why the heck would someone vandalise the sculpture! Creeps…
It’s Italian. Who knows why vandals vandalize. There has been graffiti painted on for centuries. They have found it preserved in Pompeii!
That’s a lovely fountain. Vandals suck.
