It is in white stone of Chauvigny and in two parts. The original one, with a pedestal with three water outlets pouring into a long stone tray, is the work of the architect Ollivier in 1923. The upper part in high relief, represents two young people, a young girl "peasant or Shepherdess" who addresses an "ancient Shepherd" keeping his sheep, leaning against a wall of stone, holding his long stick. The object of the conversation between his two young people is guessed, the sculptor Félix Desruelles (1865-1943) who made this work with talent in 1925. The square next door is dedicated to it. This work is accessible by the Metro station "Saint Germain des près" line n ° 4
