"Paths Of Victory" - Cat Power




Today, the Place du Chatelet. In the center of this public square, there is a foutain, La Fontaine du Palmier ("The Palm-Tree Fountain") and a column. This column was erected in 1808 to celebrate the victorys of Napoleon and the sculpture on the top represents the Victory, with the crowns of laurel in each hand. On the shaft of the column, you can see four allegorys : Prudence, Temperance, Justice & Force. (informations founded on Wiki and Paris199.lartnouveau.com)
