"Fontana del Moro" (MoorFountain) represents a Moor, or African (perhaps originally meant to be Neptune), standing ina conchshell, wrestling with a dolphin, surrounded by four Tritons. This magnificent work of art exudes a sense of energy and movement, as the powerful and muscular figure of the Moor is depicted in a lively and dynamic pose, wielding an ornate trident as he dominates the watery realm below. It is placed in a basin of rose-colored marble. In 1653, the statue of theMoor, designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and sculpted by Giannantonio Mari, was added.
