  • This "Fountain", which is now only decorative and which no longer spits water, is found leaning against the presbytery of the Church of Saint Germain des Pres. It is in white stone of Chauvigny and in two parts. The original one, with a pedestal with three water outlets pouring into a long stone tray, is the work of the architect Ollivier in 1923. The upper part in high relief, represents two young people, a young girl "peasant or Shepherdess" who addresses an "ancient Shepherd" keeping his sheep, leaning against a wall of stone, holding his long stick. The object of the conversation between his two young people is guessed, the sculptor Félix Desruelles (1865-1943) who made this work with talent in 1925. The square next door is dedicated to it. This work is accessible by the Metro station "Saint Germain des près" line n ° 4
