The little man uptop the Vendome Column
I've shown the Column Vendôme a few times here, but never the little guy on top of it! And this little guy happens to be Napoleon (this monument was actually made in his honor) ! I bet that if I'd take a poll in the street, few Parisians know that (I didn't!). The history of this monument is fascinating; not only has this statue been replaced several times but the column in itself was destroyed in 1871, during one of the many riots that we've had through our history! I'll be editing the PDP picnic video this weekend, stay tuned.
