Description

Relief of two swimming figures representing the rivers Rhône and Saôe, located at the stairs to the stock exchange / chamber of commerce. The Rhône, represented as a muscular and naked man, swims in tormented waves. The Saône, a 'weak woman' (at least, smaller and more slender than him), seems to drown and touches the chest with her right hand.
