The Beautiful Well, sculpture in Schonbrunn Garden

The Beautiful Well (Nymphe Egeria) is a sculpture in the Schönbrunn Garden of Schönbrunn Palace, a former imperial summer residence in Vienna, Austria. As it is one of the most important cultural monuments in Austria, it has become one of the major tourist attractions in Vienna. The palace and gardens illustrate the tastes, interests, and aspirations of successive Habsburg monarchs. The sculptures in the Schonbrunn Garden were mostly created between 1773 and 1780 under the direction of Johann Wilhelm Beyer, employing many sculptors.
