Colonne de Juillet

Located in the center of Place de la Bastille, Colonne de Juillet commerates the 1830 revolution when King Charles X was replaced by King Louis-Philippe. The 171 ft. (52 meter) high column honors the 504 victims during the three-days of the revolution. Another 196 victims of yet another revolution were added to the crypt in 1848. The column is topped by the 'Spirit of Liberty' statue; a close-up view is shown below.

The Four Parts of the World

I took this photo two years ago today on January 5, 2010. I'm really glad I did as the taking of photographs is no longer permitted in le Musée d'Orsay. Shown here is Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux's the 'Four Parts of the World'.

similar photo was posted in August 2011
