This feature also illustrates the years of Elvis’ life with thirteen upper waterspouts representing the years that Elvis lived in Tupelo. these thirteen spouts spill water over granite, a very hard stone symbolizing the enduring power of strong values learned during his formative years. The 29 lower spouts symbolizing Elvis’ life in Memphis flow over limestone, a soft stone symbolizing the softer, better conditions of Elvis’ life as an entertainer. The circle is completed as the lower set flows toward the upper set as a symbol of Elvis’ continuing reference to the humility and generosity flow together with the remaining twenty-nine years to form a complete circle. Elvis’ “Fountain of Life.”
