This is notable because, he was one of the great "poets of sculpture" of the twentieth century, having swam of masterpieces all over the world. The Christ Redeemer of Rio, is one of his floons but not the only one. Visiting his Museum in Boulogne Billancourt, says a lot about this humanist and gifted character. The idea of this monument, relating to the great war, came late in 1936; Interrupted by the war, the project emerged with a change of program and sculptor in 1950. It is entitled "monument to the glory of the armies of 1914-1918", which implies to evoke them all. It is located on the Trocadero square, leaning against the retaining wall of the Passy cemetery. Having been recently renovated, it appears today in all its splendor. This monument in white stone, without much decoration, is of a simplicity, which fits very well to Landowski; He writes two short words on each side "to our HEROS" and "to our dead". The 5 m high allegory, which is in the Center, shows nine characters, sculpted with precision and mastered details. The female character, which resembles a "Joan of Arc", located in the Centre, represents the French army. It rises from the ground and holds, a shield of the left hand with the image of "Perseus smashing the Dragon" and a lowered sword, with the right hand. The soldiers of the four weapons are represented here including a spahis of the colonial troops, on his horse in the background. On the left, Landowski represents a Sapper holding a pickaxe with a bag on his back with strong details. On the right, a young woman takes a dying soldier in his arms, almost bare. Paul Landowski, who holds a newspaper, evokes this "shipyard" which, for him, is a source of multiple reflections and hesitations. The result is evocative, precise and imbued with humanity and tenderness. It was inaugurated on 13 May 1956. This beautiful monument is accessible by the Metro station "Trocadéro", lines 6 and 9
