The Carl Borromäus Fountain is one of the rare examples of sculptures from secessionist Vienna .

Named after the Saint Karl Borromäus the naked cherubs had caused a scandal . Made by Otto Wagner pupil Joze Plecnik (Jože Plečnik) and Josef Engelhart , a co-founder of the  Viennese Secession. It was built between 1904-1909. You can find the fountain close to Rochusmarkt , in third district, Landstraße in Vienna. Definitely worth a visit.
