Sculptures on Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy

There are three main sculptures on the Trevi Fountain. They are all crafted from Carrara marble. In the center is Oceanus, the mythological personification of the ocean. He is riding in a chariot pulled by two horses and led by Tritons, the Greek messengers of the sea. The statue on the right is an allegory for Health. This statue on the left is Abundance. In her hands is a cornucopia while fresh water flows from a vase at her feet. Four additional statues stand on the columns. They are Abundance of Fruit, Fertility of Crops, Products of Autumn and Joy of Gardens. Crowning the ensemble is the Papal coat of arms.
