This sculpture honours a fictional character Madame Chapeau, from the Belgian comedy play, Bossemans et Coppenolle by Joris d’Hanswyck.

The sculpture depicts the elderly Madame Chapeau carrying a bag. The bag contains some vegetables and a rabbit that Madame Chapeau is planning on selling to get a ticket for a a football match (must be a famous scene from the play).

Probably works best if you're familiar with Belgian culture.

This fountain can be found in the Residenzplatz public square in the Old Town of Salzburg. Said to be the largest fountain in the city, it's a baroque and sea themed fountain.

The fountain contains four groups of sculptures. At the lowest basin stands is four sculptures of seahorses, galloping out of the waves, each spewing out a jet of water from their mouths. Above the seahorses are two men, perhaps a pair of Atlas, bearing the weight of another basin on their mighty shoulders. Above the two men is a smaller bowl supported by three dolphins. And finally, topping off the fountain is a sculpture of Triton, the Greek god of the sea spitting out water from a conch.

A lovely fountain in a lovely public square.
