  The Justice Fountain
by amsterdam_vallon

The JUSTICE FOUNTAIN was carved by Laurent Perroud between 1545 and 1547. The octogonal basin is surmounted by the figure of Justice; at her feet four figures symbolise the various forms of government in olden times : a pope, a magistrate, an emperor and a sultan. This fountain has recently been restored in accordance with the polychromy of the period.
