Carnival Fountain : Michelin's recommendations

The sculptor Jean Tinguely (1925-1991), an ex-pupil of Basel Fine Art School, created this fountain which enlivens the esplanade of the municipal theatre with its water games. The nine jointed metal creations of the huge water feature humorously depict man's futile agitation.
