17 Tourny Fountain at Parliament Building in Québec City, Canada

Tourny Fountain was one of two created in the mid-19th century. The pair was originally located along Allées de Tourny in the city of Bordeaux, France. In 2007, this version was installed in front of the Parliament Building. The unveiling event helped celebrate Québec City’s quadricentennial anniversary. The sculptures created by Mathurin Moreau are marvelous. At the base of the 23 foot fountain are frogs spouting water. In the center are bronze images from Greek mythology: Neptune, Acis, Amphitrite and Galatea. Near the top are four children standing among carp and clam shells.
