I can read that this work is a drawing in space, the closed ring is that everything can start again, the open ring is the abolition of slavery and the half ring is the return to the roots, it is also the earth that is a ball. In conclusion, I recognize that I do not have a certain level of education to understand this sentence "It is also the earth that is a ball." On links in this chain, we can see words that deal with the theme of slavery

Inaugurated on 10 May 2007 by Mrs Jacques Chirac and Nicolas Sarkozy, the work "Le CRI, L'writing" is located in the eastern part of the Jardin du Luxembourg, a few meters from the bust of Gustave Flaubert, from the Ecole des mines of the exit leading to Boulevard Saint-Michel. This sculpture of 3.70 meters in height, forming a chain of three bronze rings welded together (whose lower ring is secured to the ground and the upper is open) and possessing two completely distinct faces (a curved and dark-coloured recto, one back dish of white color dotted with red and green motifs, and words in relief on the theme of slavery) next to a large plaque explaining the symbolism of the work, and bearing on its lapel several dates marking the abolition and commemoration of slavery in France, preceded by an excerpt from Aimé Césaire's "notebook of a return to the homeland". Fabrice Hyber says of his sculpture: "the cry is the mark of the abolition of slavery, but also the warning against modern slavery. The cry is of fear, of tears, but also of joy. The cry is a metaphor for this enslavement that has been abolished by the texts. The scream is a drawing in space; for the garden in front of the Senate, you had to write! The abolition of slavery is the open chain ring, the closed ring is that everything can start over, and the base is the return to the roots, but it is also the Earth that is a ball... ». "The cry, the writing", a witness of the past, the present and the future, works for the duty of remembrance within the Jardin du Luxembourg, and surprises by the strength, the serenity, and the certainty that emerges from its apparent simplicity. Sit on a bench, and let her wrap you up with her emotions!
