About Fountain of Triton and Fountain of the Bees

The Fountain of Triton and the Fountain of the Bees were both sculpted by the artist Bernini. Bernini had as a patron the Pope Urban VIII, who came from the wealthy Barberini family. The pope commissioned Bernini to build the two fountains in the plaza in front of his family's palace, and provide water to the public from a recently restored aqueduct. The Triton fountain depicts the muscular merman-god emerging from a shell, balanced on four dolphin tails. The nearby Fountain of the Bees (delle Api) is a shell on its side, with three bees balanced on top.
