Haishen Fountain, located on the left side of the Old Palace, was created in 1563-1575. In the middle of the fountain stood a majestic statue of sea god carved from white marble, and in the middle of the pool stood a huge white sea god on a two-wheeled chariot pulled by the hippocampus. The pool is surrounded by colorful bronze statues of various shapes. This group of sculptures in the City Hall Square should be the largest group, so it is also conspicuous, easy to see.
Walking into Florence's City Square, you can see this group of beautiful white marble sculpture sea god fountains. In the middle of the fountain is a huge and powerful sea god standing on a carriage, surrounded by some half-human and half-ghost bronze sculptures. The sculptures of the horses are very delicate.
The Neptune Fountain is located in the main square of Florence, next to the old Palace of Florence. It can be regarded as one of the most famous scenic spots in this area. When I see these fountains, I often wonder how people here can imagine these strange creatures, and why they want to make some gods ugly or evil intentionally, but this requires reading sociological and cultural books to reach a general conclusion.
I like the sea god fountain, it feels lifelike. I think I prefer the statue of Cosimo I on horseback. It's very delicate.
There are many sea god fountains in Italy, such as Navona Square in Rome, as well as in Naples and Bologna. This Neptune fountain in Florence is located in the Lord's Square, just in front of the Vio Palace, but when we went there, we were surrounded and repaired. We could only see the upper half of Neptune fountain. It is said that the face of the sea god resembles that of King Cosimo I, who is the bronze statue riding a horse in the Lord's Square. You can go to see the face of the sea god fountain. Is it very similar to that of King Cosimo I? I looked at Cosimo I very carefully. It felt like Jo Dello, a Hollywood star. Even the little bump on his face was the same. It was amazing!
Sea God fountain is a huge stone statue, set up in the city square, as soon as you enter the square, you can see it. But when you go there, you should be in the edition. Half of the stone statues are surrounded by fencing boards. You can't see the sprinkler. I hope I can see it again next time.
When we arrived at the city hall, the sky was particularly dark. Our mood was as gloomy as Ammannati, the designer of the statue of the sea god. The sea god is Florence's most famous statue. It's lifelike, but it has been criticized since its inception. It's said that the sea god's stature is short, legs are short and the proportion of stature is so imbalanced that the designer finally can't stand the pressure and commits suicide.
