According to historian Yuri Biriuliov, among the "best work of Hartman Witwer (1774-1825) are ... the four stone statues made out of limestone and located at the wells on Market Square – they embodied the allegory of earth (the sculptures of Diana and Adonis) and water (the sculptures of Neptune and Amphitrite). The Market Square figures were created some time between 1810 and 1814, and are mentioned in original sources first in 1815, when the city council passed a resolution forbidding damage to the sculptures during the celebration of the traditional Ukrainian "Jordan" holiday ([the celebration of the Baptism of Jesus, and] the sanctification of water)." On the western side of the square are fountains with the figures of Neptune (the southwestern corner) and Amphitrite (the northwestern corner). On the eastern side are fountains with the figures of Adonis (northeast) and Diana (southeast side).

The Baroque townhouse with the “all-seeing eye” was built on Gothic cellars of two previous houses at the corner of Krakivska and Shevska streets in the 18th century. It has preserved its old planning structure and unique elements of white stone Baroque carving.

According to the resolution of the Council of Ministers of the Ukrainian SSR number 970 dated 23 August 1963, the house was entered in the Register of architecture and urban planning monuments of national significance under protection number 354.
