It rises 12 meters high and sets in front of a big pond in a former Medici estate. The artist, Giambologna (born Jean Boulogne), was a sculptor from Northern Europe who moved to Italy in 1550. Some of his other works are presented today in different spots in Florence, such as the Bargello Museum. Source : dailyartmagazine website Photographer unknown
