Aix en Provence fontaine de la Rotonde

Trois statues de marbre, réalisées chacune par un sculpteur différent, ornent son sommet. Chacune a une signification particulière et regarde vers une voie. La sculpture qui regarde vers le cours Mirabeau a été réalisée par l’Aixois Joseph Marius Ramus (1805-1888). Elle symbolise la justice. La statue qui regarde la route de Marseille (avenue des Belges), œuvre de Louis-Félix Chabaud (1824-1902), sculpteur de Venelles, symbolise le commerce et l’agriculture. Enfin, la troisième, orientée vers la route d’Avignon (avenue Napoléon-Bonaparte), a été sculptée par Hippolyte Ferrat (1822-1882) et symbolise les beaux-arts.
Ces trois statues ont longtemps valu à la fontaine le surnom de « fontaine des Trois-Grâces8 ».
