I photographed this fine little sculpture-fountain at the Botanic Garden yesterday. It is a subject I have photographed on other occasions with at least three other cameras.
The boy with a swan became a popular subject for artists midway through the 19th Century. There are sculptures and fountains with this theme in many cities around the world.

The inspiration for all the works of art on this theme was most certainly a depiction of a boy with a goose by the Greek sculptor, Boethus, dating from about 160BC.
The fountain in Albuquerque's Botanic Garden appears to be a bronze casting, possibly from the early Twentieth Century.
