Long Description:
Marsvinsbrønden er udført af kunstneren Hans Olsen, hvis frue afslørede brønden den 25.10.1957. Motivet til denne skulptur er scener fra tidligere tiders marsvinsjagt. I mange år var marsvinjagt Middelfarts vigtigste levebrød. Marsvinjægere levede af at sælge marsvineolie, som blev brugt til fremstilling af lampeolie.
Relieffet på Marsvinebrønden er udført i bronze.
