Originally intended to be placed in the Tethys grotto, a structure overlooking the gardens, formerly located near the Chapel, this work is one of Louis XIV’s first commissions in the area of sculpture. It introduces the theme of Apollo into the gardens.

The book presents the history of these sculptures, from the Tethys grotto to their recent restoration.
