  • The unusual statue of this horse Cabré will not fail to surprise you, as was our case, during our walk through the Latin quarter.

  • This statue, which dates from 1980, is located in the charming space, place Lucien Herr, in the 5th arrondissement, at the corner of Rue Lhomond and Pierre Brossolette. The Spanish artist, Camilo Otero (1932-2005), is a very original and singular sculptor, whose works are made of strange things, disjointed plate forms, unstructured heads, supposed to represent a very complete caricature. His characters seem to come from another world, both forms are unusual. This cabed horse is carved in a stone block, mounted on a pedestal with stone facings attached to the plaster. It represents a minded rider, made of blocks carved without detail. The horse is of the same style, its head is made of a species of huge growling, topped with fins, like a prehistoric animal. It is cambled and rests on its big tail in the back. Nothing conventional... and that is what makes the charm of this work. In addition, the setting of this place is charming, with the singing of a nearby fountain and beautiful plantations. One can pause on a bench and have all the leisure to admire this beautiful work! This statue is accessible by the Metro station "place Monge" line n ° 7. Then you have to take rue Ortolan, which runs along the square and continue on the iron pot Street to Lhomond Street on the left. The square is 100 m.
