Bronze statue of Apollo.
Signed: F. Sicard 1930

A copy of this statue is in the Archibald Fountain in Sydney, Australia. The Archibald fountain was erected in Hyde Park North in 1932, a gift to the City of Sydney bequeathed in the will of J F Archibald. It is intended to commemorate the association between Australia and France in the First World. It depicts a bronze Apollo surrounded by other mythical figures. Horses' heads, dolphins and tortoises exuberantly spray jets of water.
- François-Léon Sicard (Tours 1862 - Paris 1934),
