"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. (

The Genius represents "the Freedom which flies away by breaking his irons and by sowing the light". (
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.
