The Statues of Paris

Paris is a land of architectural details. You see them everywhere on the streets. Here is a compilation of The Statues of Paris.

First stop : Musee d'Orsay :









Here are a few more outside a government building :





... and on public infrastructure :





... and in public spaces :





















... and obviously in the Louvre as well!

Nice shots at different places throughout this great city !

Paris stimulates the senses, demanding to be seen, heard, touched, tasted and smelt. From romance along the Seine to landscapes on bus-sized canvases to the pick-an-ism types in cafes monologuing on the use of garlic or the finer points of Jerry Lewis, Paris is the essence of all things French.

Yes, wonderful thread! Thanks for posting, hkskyline

There's no shortage of statues/monuments in my city that's for sure! I've tripped over a great many of them over the years so take my word for it!
