  • It is a beautiful sculpture that in my opinion serves only to decorate the great palace. I want to make it clear that this sculpture is in an angle of the grand palace and that it is 30 meters high. It's beautiful, it's pretty but as far as I'm concerned, I regret the lack of information panel to show views of this sculpture.

  • This beautiful allegorical bronze sculpture (Baroque style) represents a quadrige (a chariot of Greco-Roman antiquity pulled by four horses) led by the Fame (Greco-Roman deity, crowned with laurels, messenger of the gods) and stunning Chronos, the god of time and destiny. Immortality here is symbolized by the glory and public recognition that triumph over time and death. This sculpture was made as part of the World's Fair (1900) by the French painter and sculptor Georges Récipon (1860-1920). It crowns the entrance to the northeast rotunda of the Grand Palais, on the side of the Champs Elysees avenue. It forms a pair with the quadrige crowning the entrance to the south-eastern rotunda of the Grand Palais, on the side of the Seine and Cours la Reine, which is also the work of Georges Recipon.
