Cool centaur statue in the 6th arrondissement
Check out this neat centaur statue I found at the corner of Rue de Sèvres and Rue du Cherche Midi, in the 6th arrondissement.
A little internet research tells me this sculpture was created in 1985 by French sculptor César Baldaccini (often referred to as simply César), who happens to be the same guy who did the huge thumb (aka Le Pouce) at La Défense.
