Description

Rohallion in the title refers to the name of an estate in New Jersey, whose owner commissioned MacMonnies to create a large fountain of this design for a garden pool. Later, the artist made several smaller versions, such as this example. Here, the ancient Greek god Pan plays his musical pipes while standing on an orb supported by fish.
