Pont Alexandre III

Maybe the most beautiful bridge in Paris.


Pont Alexandre III, 1900
Inaugurated for the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1900, the first stone was laid by Tsar Nicolas II of Russia in 1896, and was intended to symbolize the friendship between France and Russia. A few sculptures grace the bridge.

On each pylon, there is a Renommée statue :

La Renommé des Arts, Emmanuel Frémiet

La Renommée de la Guerre, Clément Steiner


La Renommée de l'Agriculture, Gustave Michel




At the bottom of each pylon, a representation of France :

La France de Charlemagne, Alfred Lenoir


La France de la Renaissance, Jules-Félix Coutan


La France de Louis XIV, Laurent Honoré Marqueste


La France pacifique, Gustave Michel




On the bridge :

La Fillette à la coquille, Léopold Maurice


L'Enfant au crabe, Léopold Maurice


L'Enfant au poisson, André Massoule


Lion à l'enfant, Georges Gardet

The Molecule Man is a 30 metre high, 45 ton aluminium sculpture by Jonathan Borofsky and is positioned in the River Spree. The sculptures consist of three humans leaning towards each other, the bodies of which are filled with hundreds of holes, the holes representative of "the molecules of all human beings coming together to create our existence".

Wrocław’s dwarfs (Polish: krasnale, krasnoludki) are small figurines that first appeared in the streets of Wrocław, Poland, in 2001. Since then, their numbers have been continually growing, and today they are considered a tourist attraction: those who would like to combine sight-seeing in Wrocław with dwarf-tracking are offered special brochures with a map[1] and mobile application software for smartphones.[2] As of 2014, there are over 300 dwarfs spread all over the city. Six of them are located outside the city at the LG plant in Biskupice Podgórne.

In 2001, to commemorate the Orange Alternative (polish anti-communist movement), a figurine of a dwarf (the movement’s symbol) was officially placed on Świdnicka Street, where the group’s happenings used to take place. It is probably one of the few cases in the world where such a subversive group has been honoured by the city authorities, who commissioned the placing of a statue of a dwarf in the city centre. In 2003, the Mayor of Wrocław, in an attempt to continue the new tradition, unveiled a small plaque on the door of The Dwarfs’ Museum. It can be found at the height of human knees on the wall of a historic tenement called Jaś, which is situated between the Market Square and St. Elizabeth’s Church.

The figures of the dwarfs, which are smaller than the Orange Alternative monument on Świdnicka Street, were placed in different parts of the city. The first five, designed by Tomasz Moczek, a graduate of The Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, were placed in August 2005. These were the Fencer near the University of Wrocław, the Butcher in Stare Jatki arcade, two Sisyphuses on Świdnicka Street and the Odra-Washer-Dwarf, near Piaskowy Bridge. The name of the last dwarf is related to Pracze Odrzańskie, an estate on the outskirts of the city. Since that time, the number of figures has continued growing, predominantly in the Old Town.

A ceremony unveiling two other dwarfs took place on the day of June 18, 2008. They were situated on Świdnicka Street, next to W-skers: a dwarf in a wheel chair. The figures represent two disabled dwarfs: the Deaf-mute and the Blind. They are part of the Wrocław Without Barriers campaign, which aims at drawing attention to handicapped people living in Wroclaw. Five days later, at the Hematology and Pediatric Oncology Clinic in Wrocław, another dwarf was erected. It was to be the third female dwarf, Marzenka, whose design was based on the logo of the Mam marzenie charity.[3]

From what I saw with my own eyes, these are my favourite examples of sculpture as public art in urban spaces:

- Bernini's fountain of the four rivers in Piazza Navona, Rome. Especially at night.
- Barcaccia fountain, Rome (Bernini)
- Fontana di Trevi, Rome
- the Sant'Angelo bridge with angel sculptures, Rome (Bernini)

- the Medici fountain in the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris
- the fountain of the four corners of the world by Carpeaux in Paris at the Paris Observatory Gardens (right at the entrance of the Jardin du Luxembourg)
- the Greek Actor in the Jardin du Luxembourg behind, with the Pantheon behind
- Maillol's sculptures at the entrance of the Tuileries Gardens (Paris)
Overall I would say that the Tuileries is the best permanent open air exhibition of sculpture in a city centre that I have seen so far, despite not really having many masterpieces in it. I still have many cities to visit though, especially Florence.
- the Calder sculpture in front of the Centre Pompidou

- the Buxton Memorial fountain + the Burghers of Calais (Rodin) in Victoria Tower Gardens, London
- the Scott Monument in Princes Street Gardens, Edinburgh
