Description: Ceramic animal-like figures in a pool
Caption: The inscription on the marble base says that in the very earliest time, when both humans and animals lived on earth, a person could become an animal if he wanted and an animal could become a human being.
Another inscription from Chief Seattle says that if all animals ceased to exist, human beings would die of great loneliness of the spirit.
There are rumors that the figures slip out of the pool at night when no one is looking and stroll around the airport.
