Fuente Wittelsbacher, Plaza Lenbach, MĂșnich, Alemania, 2017-07-07, DD 11-14 HDR.jpg

The monumental Wittelsbacher fountain in the northern part of central Munich, in Bavaria, Germany. The sculpture on the left is of a woman seated on a bull, holding a bowl, and depicts the healing qualities of water; on the right, a man sits astride a horse and hurls a rock, representing water's destructive power. Built between 1893 and 1895, the design follows drawings of the sculptor Adolf von Hildebrand.
