Latona fountain Inspired by Ovid’s Metamorphoses, the Latona fountain illustrates the legend of Apollo’s mother and Diana protecting her children against the insults of the peasants of Lycia, and calling on Jupiter to avenge them. He heard their plea and transformed them into frogs and lizards.
Versailles Fountains in the garden of the Versailles Palace in France. Louis XIV commissioned the Mirror fountain around 1702. Built facing the King’s Garden, the sculpture with two dragons framing the pool was entrusted to Jean Hardy. Installed on three levels, it leads to three paths and four antique-style statues, including one of Apollo.
