Barmaley Fountain by Pithead Miniatures
The Barmaley Fountain is an informal name of a fountain in the city of Volgograd (formerly known as Stalingrad). Its official name is Children's Khorovod. The statue is of a circle of six children dancing around a crocodile. While the original fountain was removed in the 1950s, two replicas were installed in 2013.
