  • I regret not having taken my pair of binoculars to appreciate this sculpture but in fact, I do not regret anything because there is no explanatory sign on the floor to explain this one. In fact, it's decorative and I loved the green color of this sculpture.

  • This allegory, about unusual, is placed on the corner pavilion of the Grand Palais side Seine. It imposes itself by its size and the deployment of its elements with "Harmony" personified by "Apollo in Aurige" (God of Light and protector of the Arts), which opens its arms in victory, on a chariot pulled by four horses in full movement. The structure that jumps out of the building, represents the Good against the Evil which is then rushed into the void. The "discord" is represented by a woman deformed by anger, stretched out in front of the chariot. This feat is possible thanks to a very light set made of copper plates, placed on an internal metal structure. The spokes of the wheels as well as the wingslioned lions on the rear, are ceramic. Work of Georges Recipon (1860-1920) , for the Universal Exhibition of 1900 , it is intended above all to show the French know-how in monumental works of art, with the ensemble composed of the Pont Alexandre III.
