The Archibald Fountain is a magnificent art deco style fountain located in Hyde Park. The central granite pedestal features a bronze sculpture of Apollo, surrounded by other mythological characters of ancient Greece on three lower pedestals. The fan-like shape of water formed by jets rising behind Apollo, represent the rising sun. The fountain is named after J.F. Archibald, owner and editor of The Bulletin, a newspaper which later became a magazine that encouraged writers to write about Australia. He bequeathed funds to build it to commemorate the association of Australia and France in World War I. It was designed by French artist Francois Sicard and was unveiled on 14 March 1932.
