FOUNTAIN OF LIFE

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.”
