"You got a Fountain Idol! This is a strange statue of a girl carrying water."
— In-game description

The Fountain Idol is a quest item from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker. It is an item in the quest for the Shop Guru Statue. It can be traded to Link by the Traveling Merchant on Bomb Island and Greatfish Isle in exchange for a Big Catch Flag, Sickle Moon Flag, Skull Tower Idol, or Postman Statue. It can be traded with the merchant on Bomb Island for a Sickle Moon Flag, with the merchant on the Mother & Child Isles for a Big Sale Flag or with the Merchant on Greatfish Isle for a Skull Tower Idol. Once Link acquires it through trade he can buy it from Zunari in his shop on Windfall Island.

Oddly, if Link looks at the statue from a long distance, the girl will act as though she is drifting off to sleep, causing water to spill from her jug. She then shakes her head and returns to a normal posture.


The Fountain Idol is a gray statue of a female with long hair and a pot upon her head. The idol appears with one hand holding the pot and the other resting against her body.
