Wittelsbacher Fountain in Munich, Germany

The east end of Lenbachplatz is defined by Wittelsbacher Fountain. Wittelsbacherbrunnen was created in 1895 by sculptors Adolf von Hildebrand and Erwin Kurz. Of particular interest are the two allegorical marble statues. On the left is a man riding a horse with a fish tail. The rock he is about to throw represents the damaging power of water. On the right is an Amazon riding a sea bull. She represents the positive attributes of water. The trees in the background mark the beginning of Maximilian Square. The rectangular park offers a respite during an active day of sightseeing.
