When I saw this I thought that the legs sticking out would look great in 3D. I was surprised to find an amusing paragraph in a Wikipedia article on the sculpture:

Count Alexander Von Svoboda's The Quest features a fountain with nude figures intertwined in a sort of a "swim". However, some Portlanders over the years have drawn their own conclusions as to what the figures are doing and nicknamed the work "Six Groins in a Fountain", "The Grope", or "Family Night at the YMCA".
