The Marian column

Matěj Václav Jäckel’s Marian column was originally part of a fountain, referring to the historical name of the Monastery : Fons Beatae Mariae Virginis. This model of a  Madonna and Child at the top of a column was later several times re-used by the sculptor, such as in the mirror replica on Charles Bridge in Prague.
