Statue of Winter crib figurine


In 1674, 24 statues in white marble were commissioned by Colbert to decorate the Water Parterre. Representing the seasons, the male and female figures show attributes that enable us to identify them. Winter, the last season of the year, is represented by a perished old man heating himself at a brazier. An allegory of passing time, the statue of Winter symbolises the end of human life.
