  • Would love to see the famous fountain Bertoldi, but ... with fountains, this time in France is not luck. Here's and saw instead of water jets and sculptural composition place the closed building. Reconstruction. When the end is unknown. Very sorry. Among other things, Bertoldi, a native of Colmar, author of the "statue of freedom" that is now in New York (and reduced its copy is in Colmar). I mentioned it is not just the famous statue of was the fact that the project fountain young sculptor, then frozen for years was finally adopted and implemented, not only in Bordeaux, as originally planned, and already in Lyon. The fountain is a composition from the central figure of a woman on a chariot drawn by four horses (this is, as you might guess-France). Horses are symbolic depiction of the four major rivers of the country-the Loire, Seine, Saône and Rhône. Sona and Ron are present in Lyon. Here is such a beauty and unable to see, maybe you better luck when the updated fountain will work again (I am lucky so see outdoor Trevi after restoration in Rome).
