Musée du Louvre, Paris
One of the most famous work of Goujon is the Fontaine des Innocents, erected in 1550 in rue aux Fers in Paris. There are six narrow reliefs representing nymphs holding urns in various positions.
These caryatid-type figures are adapted from the stucco decorations and were to become so marked a feature of French sculpture.
