Ram Head Fountain

Housed in Sutherland Community Garden, in the northwest corner of the Lory Student Center Courtyard, are three Ram Head Fountains that were part of the original building, which was constructed in 1962. Initially there were seven Ram Heads, but four were damaged over the years. The current sculptures were preserved during the LSC renovation for inclusion in the Courtyard. The Ram Heads are hand carved and were designed by the same man who created the original Venetian Glass Tiles installations now adorning the Main Staircase.
