Очень любопытные фигурки.... А на столбе - по форме что-то похожее на "хАмсу"....

Zsolnay Fountain, Pécs (Pecs):

The Zsolnay fountain by Andor Pilch, decorated with eosin glaze and standing in the southern part of Zsolnay Square, serves as a memorial to that. Created in 1912, it was erected only in 1930. Its ornamentation shows features from the Treasures of Nagyszentmiklós. Standing four metres high, water trickles from four bull head spouts on four sides into the curved basin. A gift from Miklós Zsolnay, the fountain is ornamented with the coats of arms of the town and of the Zsolnay factory. The inscription on the four sides of the curb reads: "William Zsolnay's memorial fountain/ be the eternal eye-witness/ to the thriving of Pécs town/ to its inhabitants' prosperity."
