Artwork description

A stone fountain is dominated by the statue of Amphitrite, wife of Poseidon, god of the sea in Greek mythology. Lying on a bed of seashells, rocks and fruit, she holds what seems to be a harp in her left hand. The fountain is installed under a large glass roof, reflected in the black marble basin from which flows a thin film of water, like a transparent tablecloth. The sculpture is the work of the French sculptor Dieudonné-Barthélemy Guibal (1699-1757). Originally it crowned a fountain in Saint-Mihiel, in the Meuse department of France.
