This fountain is named after Anthony Minoprio, an architect on the committee of the Constance Fund, which was set up to promote water sculptures in public settings and which donated this water sculpture to the University in 1988.
The sculptures of Vivien ap Rhys Pryce are based on the great tradition of figurative art. Human figures have been her main source of inspiration and they form the themes of many of her sculptures.
