Description

The Baroque movement marble Artichoke Fountain is a monumental octagonal water feature in Florence that epitomizes Renaissance sculpture and Baroque opulence. The fountain sits on a serena stone base, with white marble embellishing the corners of the limestone surface. In the center of the Baroque movement marble Artichoke Fountain stands a candelabra fountain supported by marble columns decorated with bronze floral motifs and featuring statues of Triton and Nereid, each holding a large circular basin inlaid with gray granite and colored marble. Originally, the Baroque movement marble Artichoke Fountain was topped by a bronze lily, now lost, that symbolized the entrance to the Baroque movement marble Artichoke Fountain and its namesake fountain. At each corner of the octagonal pool, a row of white marble cupids adorns the edge of the fountain, either sitting on dice and shells or riding swans and turtles in playful battle scenes.

Facing the courtyard, three tiers of scalloped pools flow through the water, flanked by statues of Saturn and a nymph. Saturn holds a dolphin and the nymph a fish, both spouting water from their mouths.
