Believed to be the earliest depiction of the Courbette (a horse rearing on its hind legs) this fountain was considered to be a pioneering work for its time. Built in 1621 from plans made by Christoph Gumpp, the statue atop the fountain represents Archduke Leopold V, Prince of Tirol, who ruled from 1619 to 1632. The figure of Leopold and his horse are surrounded by images of sea deities, the originals of which can be found in the Ferdinandeum, Tirol’s regional museum.
