Tritone Con Delfino
As featured in the classical European garden architecture, a hand carved limestone Triton statue in the style of Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680). Triton was the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, god and goddess of the sea in Greek mythology.
This 20th Century sculpture depicts a kneeling man with horse-like legs and a large, scaled fish tail. The head is tilted back blowing into a conch shell which expels water into the air. The left hand presses a large Dauphin Grotesque tightly against the torso. This antique Italian garden ornament was used as a water feature. The original rectangular pedestal with bevels supports the sculpture.
