Beyond a series of fountain masks adorning a wall just past the Rennaisance-era Chigi-Albani Palace, lies the main monumental façade of the Papacqua fountain.
At the center of this exuberant Mannerist-style fountain is an enormous statue of a goat-legged woman with three infants crawling up her body. She is usually interpreted as simply “Mother,” or “Queen of the Waters,” and may represent the mythical she-goat Amalthea who nurtured the infant Zeus in a cave on a mountain in Crete.
