Created in 2016, it is due to the sculptor Denis Monfleur, a native of Périgueux, who installed his workshop in the former salt loft of Fontenay-sous-Bois (94). Senator Jean-François Voguet, Mayor of this commune, awarded him on behalf of the Minister of culture and communication, the insignia of the Knight of Arts and letters. This work, the largest monolithic sculpture of Paris, made in lava of Chambois (volcanoes of the Puy-de-Dôme) and weighing about six tons, pays tribute to the "international brigades", volunteer fighters from all countries to fight with the Spanish Republicans against fascism and freedom. This sculpture marks the 80th anniversary of the beginning of the Spanish war in 1936 and the creation of these brigades. "The bearer of hope" is taken from the novel by André Malraux "l'Espoir", which chronicles the Spanish war. You can come by Metro, lines 5, 10 or "RER C", station "Gare d'Austerlitz".
