Fontaines de la Concorde, Paris
The Fontaines de la Concorde are two fountains located in the Place de la Concorde in Paris. The central figures are cast-iron, and the 12 triton and mermaid statues (6 in each fountain) are bronze.
Place de la Concorde was the site of many public executions of royalty during the French Revolution. King Louis-Philippe renamed the Place de Revolution to Place de la Concorde after the 1830 July Revolution. This is a reference to peace and harmony.
The Maritime Fountain, which is shown here, is closer to the Seine River, and represents the maritime spirit of France. The Fountain of the Rivers represents the Rhône River and the Rhine River.
I visited Paris for only 2 days and know that there are so many scenes I need to photograph. If I'm ever queen for the day, I'd have each location to myself for a couple of hours. LOL
