Photograph of the Fountain of Fama in the Palace gardens of La Granja de San Ildefonso. The fountain depicts a winged woman seated on the back of a horse that stands at the top of a rocky outcrop. Down the side of the pediment lies a prone male figure holding a bow with a sheath of arrows at his side. Satyrs and another female populate the base of the rock. There are mature trees in the background.
