13 Fountains outside Vienna State Opera in Vienna, Austria

On the sides of the Vienna State Opera are fountains (Opernbrunnen) created by sculptor Josef Gasser. On the west is this female figure holding a lyre. She is an allegory for music and dance. Along the opposite façade is a portrayal of Lorelei. According to legend, she is a siren responsible for sinking ships along the narrowest section of the Rhine.
