  • This statue "Pericles distributing wreaths to the famous artists of his time" is the work of the sculptor Jean-Baptiste Debay and this one dates from 1833. The character is Pericles born in Athens around 495 BC, he is a statesman and a very good orator. For the statue it no longer has its hoop - crown and its sword is broken Theophile Gauthier, journalist in 1836 describes this statue at the time: "It perfectly represents the ideal of Switzerland, it is long hail with small legs stringy and a poor wet drapery on his back, a fireman's helmet on his head.... He holds a kind of hoop in his hand that he holds forward, as if to offer it to you. It looks like a retired old undertaker selling immortal wreaths at the door of a cemetery. » »
