Two symmetrical fountains representing Neptune and Amphitrite are arranged in the corners of the Place Stanislas. They are in a rococo style that breaks with the classical architecture of the place.
The fountain in the north-west corner has a statue of Neptune holding a trident, overlooking children riding on dolphins. The two side windows framing two other fountains with children on dolphins. In the small fountain on the left, we see a crying child, because a crab pinched him the finger, the crab however has disappeared.
- Barthélémy Guibal (Nîmes 1699 - duché de Lorraine 1757),
