Snake fountain

In this same circular patio we will also find two extraordinary fonts, one on each side of the stairs, behaving in its base a container for which the waters are poured. About this are four crocodile heads directed to the four cardinal points. On the four head of crocodile a nine-lap up spiral is developed, where it runs the water that is poured, at the top of the same, by the mouth of a serpent to the interior of a chalice. The spiral evokes the evolution of a force, a state. Represents the repeated rhythms of life, as well as the entire cyclical character of the evolutionary path. The nine announces at the same time an end and a fresh start, that is, makes transposition to a new plan through a process of death and rebirth; Therefore, it is the initiation number.
