To the statue’s immediate right, the Indian theme comes to a neck-snapping halt; suddenly we’re deep in shagland, with faux stone and a fountain that looks like it came from a lawn-and-garden center. Which I have no doubt it did.

Here's the problem: drift. Things lose focus. If a style falls out of favor, well, add something timeless, like a "classical" fountain. That'll balance it out, somehow.

Plus, fountains are classy. People like fountains.
