FOUNTAIN WITH PUTTO RIDING A DOLPHIN
The original fountain was probably created during the reconstruction of the town after the Thirty Year’s War. The style of the sculptural group with four dolphin gargoyles was inspired by the Triton Fountain in Rome. The boy, Putto, riding the dolphin symbolizes friendship and depicts bishop’s responsiveness towards the town. It has a visual link to the Marian column standing nearby. Fountains often served as a public water source for townspeople.
