I believe the fountain is made of wax not the liquid flowing through it. :)
Note: the man is doing during the video is opening the lion's mouth more so
that the water can come through.

But what is this wax fountain for? Is it just for looks? If so, why
use wax and not water or another liquid? I assume that the liquid
flowing through the fountain is wax and not that this means that the
fountain is made of wax. And, particularly in period, how would they
keep the wax from solidifying in the fountain? Not too difficult to
do today with electric heating elements, but then...
