"Genius" - Kings Of Leon



Today, a parisian monument wich is ay Bastille place : the Genius of the Bastille and the bronze column.
This bronze column, known as the column of "July", have been raised in the center of the place between 1833 & 1840. It is 52 meters high, and has a 4 meters in diameters. It ends with a balcony surmounted of a genius which holds in a hand a broken chain and in the other a lit torch. (parisrama.fr)



The Genius represents "the Freedom which flies away by breaking his irons and by sowing the light". (parisrama.fr)
The Bastille place is also one of the important parisian point for the public demonstration, as the Republique place (a post about it next week).

I continue to be amazed at all the beautiful art, architecture and sculptures in France. A friend just returned from Paris and showed me her photographs. I was actually able to remember some of the sites from CDPB.
