  • Roma: Sightseeing - Trevi Fountain

    Trevi Fountain - The central statue represents Ocean, the son of Sky and Vesta. The union of Ocean and Thetis is the source of all water and rivers, and represents a river that flows around the world and is the source of all water. Ocean's beard is wisdom and power, the wand is similiar to those held by Roman emperors and also are on coins.  The horse symbolizes the sea.  The restless horse is the violent strength, and the calm horse is the tranquil sea.
