Tiny sassy dude hiding on the Fontaine Saint-Michel
Can you spot him? I'll give you a sec.
There he is...
Is he sticking his tongue out? Why I never!
This is one of my favorite weird art things I've ever noticed in Paris. This little well-dressed young man sticking his tongue out was glued onto the fountain at Saint-Michel, and it would have been easy to miss if you're looking at, you know, the big gorgeous fountain. I don't know how I noticed it, but I'm glad I did!
I first spotted this guy around 2008, and I assumed he must be long gone by now, but a recent (2015-ish) visitor to Paris just confirmed for me that he's still there! I admire the little guy's sticktoitiveness.
