In 2009, we drove into quiet Radda after a lazy lunch at an amazing winery because we needed a good walk and this was the nearest town. The town is quite small so the walk wasn’t really helping to burn off any of the lunch calories.

I yelled out “It’s Scar, it’s Scar” (which was definitely the wine talking). My son, who was on this trip, came over to the fountain and he too saw the resemblance. We wondered if the fountain inspired a Disney artist, or was the fountain head newly inspired by the movie. Hmmmm…
