Story Time—Birmingham, Alabama

The fountain sculpture at Five Points South in Birmingham, Alabama was created by local artist Frank Fleming. The central figure in the fountain, holds an open book in his left hand and a nine foot tall staff in his right. An assortment of animals appear to listen attentively to “The Storyteller”.

If one walks behind the storyteller, his back trouser pocket is partially open. Sometimes, there are interesting things there.

Frank Fleming’s sculpture of different animals listening together to the story is intended to convey the idea of a peaceful kingdom.
