Water elements have a way of creating a healing environment. Water elements are sometimes found in places you do not anticipate seeing them such as inside a mall or commercial building. I believe they reinforce a tranquil feeling for onlookers.
This globe fountain reminds me of the 1954 movie 'Three Coins in a Fountain.' I stumbled upon it in a mall that was populated with children, young adults, and elderly. All of whom could enjoy the atmosphere it provided.

This water elements is the focal point in a calming rest area for shoppers in a busy beach town.
