  • Another sculpture that nobody likes and nobody knows. Never in activity, interferes with traffic and "serves as trash" as said previously.

  • In the 15th arrondissement, at the intersection of Modigliani, Balard and Saint Charles streets, at the end of Jean Cocteau square and opposite the garden of the sub-lieutenant Eugénie Djendi, you will discover this modern fountain named "Polypores" or "Fontaine Modigliani ", because of these immense saucers hung like mushrooms with tree trunks. Created in 1982 and a height of four meters, it is the work of the Visual artist Jean Yves Lechevallier. Unfortunately this fountain is no longer in water and serves as garbage cans to all sorts of rubbish, bottles, cans... It would be really time to put that fountain back on. Metro line 8, station "Lourmel".

  • I did not know this sculpture: it is of an artist, Jean-Yves Lechevallier, highly esteemed in French environment. Born in 1946, in Normandy, it is estimated precisely because of its ability to integrate its sculptures in the surrounding environment. I believe this fountain is his best known work

  • The statue resembles a stack of plates, it is located on a very pleasant square between an entrance to the garden of the sous Lieutenant Eugènie Djendi and the entrance of the square Cocteau
