We’re staying in Paris. La Fontaine Stravinsky is a whimsical public fountain ornamented with sixteen works of sculpture, moving and spraying water, representing the works of composer Igor Stravinsky. It was created in 1983 by sculptors Jean Tinguely and Niki de Saint Phalle, and is located on Place Stravinsky, next to the Centre Pompidou.

The sculptures represent the following works:
- L’Oiseau de feu (The Firebird)
- La Clef de Sol (the Musical Key of G)
