This first HD photo shows the statue of Faune located in a niche on the facade of the impressive Fontaine de Medici, which is a historical fountain that was constructed in the 1600s for Marie de Medici, who was the widow of King Henri IV.

However, over the years there have been several changes made to this fountain, and when much of Paris was changing through the works undertaken by Baron Haussmann, the architect Alphonse de Gisors was given the task of relocating the Fontaine de Medici and for its renovation.

So, Alphonse de Gisors commissioned the French sculptor Auguste Ottin, sometimes spelt Augustus Ottin, to produce new statues for this monument, and this statue of Faune was produced in 1866, and is based upon Roman mythology as a God called Faune, spelt Faun in English and Faunus in Latin.
