In the southern part of the Royal Łazienki, near the Egyptian Temple, stands a water basin, most likely from the 19th century. It consists of a tall pedestal adorned with a lion’s mask. Water spouts from the lion’s open mouth into a semi-circular basin. On top of the pedestal is a ball entangled by Ouroboros, a serpent eating its own tail. This motif originated in the art of Ancient Egypt and Greece, and symbolizes infinity; it was often employed in Classicism. The basin is also decorated with oxen skulls and laurel festoons alluding to the art of Antiquity.
