Theseus defeats the Minotaur

Sydney February 2013 (3 images)

Theseus defeating the Minotaur is a part of the Archibald Fountain in Hyde Park, Sydney.

The Archibald Fountain, properly called the J.F. Archibald Memorial Fountain, widely regarded as the finest public fountain in Australia, is located in Hyde Park, in central Sydney, New South Wales. It is named after J.F. Archibald, owner and editor of The Bulletin magazine, who bequeathed funds to have it built. Archibald specified that it must be designed by a French artist, both because of his great love of French culture and to commemorate the association of Australia and France in World War I. The artist chosen was François-Léon Sicard.
