FROM THE ART PRODUCT PAGE:
I tend to refer to the half-men half-fish beings who inhabit the Forsyth Park Fountain in Savannah, Georgia, as mermen. That is not an error, but students of mythology might prefer to call them Tritons. In Greek mythology, they are described as the demigod sons of the sea god Poseidon and Amphitrite, his beloved. Like the Tritons of Greek myth, the ones which inhabit the Forsyth Park Fountain carry twisted seashells through which they blow streams of water (the ones from mythology used their shell-horns to manipulate the flow of waves).

According the Smithsonian Art Inventories Catalog, Janes, Beebe & Company modeled the Forsyth Park Fountain (with some changes) "after a cast iron fountain designed by the J. P. Victor Andre Iron Foundry for display at the 1851 Crystal Palace Exhibition in London, which in turn was modeled after a fountain on the Place-de-la-Concorde in Paris, France."
