Proserpina Fountain

 Stary Rynek Poznan Poland     28 Sep 2017

One of four fountains in each corner of the market square depicting characters from Roman mythology, only ​Proserpina is the 'real McCoy' (to use a delightfully random English idiom); the other three are reproductions. Dating back to 1766, this beautiful fountain depicts the goddess of grain and agriculture being dramatically abducted by the God of the Underworld.
