Mexico City – Chapultepec Park has several water-inspired sculptures, including a beautiful fountain of the Aztec rain god Tlaloc designed by Diego Rivera. The Cárcamo de Dolores was inaugurated in 1951 as a water distribution system. What remains are the murals and the towers that provided ventilation for the giant water tanks. The serpentine sculptures are amazing. The indoor space has mostly been closed.
