Licensed under PD

La Fontana del Moro (The Fountain of the Moor) at the south end of the Plaza Navona in Rome shows a Moor wrestling with a dolphin surrounded by four tritons.

The fountain and tritons were executed by Giacomo della Porta in 1575. The statue of the Moor by Gian Lorenzo Bernini was added in 1653. The originals of the figures were moved to the Villa Borghese in 1871.
