Description

In the middle of the roundabout at Lauw (pronounced lo), water is flowing. A bronze statue of a nymph leaning forward and drinking water. Behind her a large rock, and next to that a red sandstone wall with two curious children. On the wall is a relief showing local logging industry and the coat of arms of the town, at the side of the children is a relief showing the church and the bridge of Lauw. The sandstone wall is sculpted by Catherine Fellmann from Masevaux in 2005.
