  Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi
by martin_nl

Bernini designed this beautiful Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi for Pope Innocentius X Pamphilj. The four giants on the fountain symbolise the 4 big rivers known at that time: the Nile, Ganges, Donau and the Rio de la Plata. The giant that symbolises the Nile waers a veal, since it is facing the Sant'Agone, which was designed by Bernini's rival Borromini.
