Trapped in the city

In front of Le Musée d'Orsay, there are 3 magnificent animal sculptures. I already showed you one of them once (a horse if I recall), which used to be on my way to school when I was a little boy. I used to climb on it, for I thought it was just a game for kids!). Now that there are in front of the Musée, I know that they are real pieces of art! Like this stunning "trapped Elephant" made by Emmanuel Fremiet, a French sculptor who was obviously very gifted.

  2. Well done. Even shooting directly into the sun, you got the sculpture well exposed.

    2. Thank you ! If you found back a photo of this sculpture when it was located at Porte de Saint Cloud, I would buy it a good price ! And even more for a photo with you at that time, close to the elephant ;-)
