Right next to the Centre Georges Pompidou, I saw the Stravinsky Fountain there are a very nice, colourful, and vivid fountain, consisting of sixteen separate sculptures. This fountain was made in 1982 and 1983 by the famous artist Niki de Saint-Phalle and her husband Jean Tinguely. The fountain is dedicated to the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. Every sculpture points at one of his plays. The black-painted mechanical sculptures are by Tinguely, the colored works by Niki de Saint-Phalle.
