Aix en Provence fontaine de la Rotonde

L’édifice est construit en pierre froide des carrières de Saint-Antonin, de Pourrières et de Fuveau. Sa hauteur maximale est de 12 mètres5. En bas, un grand bassin circulaire est entouré de sculptures léonines. Un deuxième bassin, plus petit, se situe plus haut. Ce petit bassin est surmonté d’un piédestal décoré de têtes de guépard. Enfin, un ensemble de trois statues couronne le tout.
L’historien aixois André Bouyala d’Arnaud fait de la fontaine une description poétique au moment du couchant, même si les statues de Truphème lui déplaisent vivement : « La fontaine monumentale prend sa revanche au couchant. Les lions accroupissent vomissent du feu ; les trois statues du sommet sont sur un brasier. Dans le bassin des flammes tombent en cascades et les enfants chevauchent des tisons rouges6. »
Le diamètre total du monument est de 41 mètres7.
