  • In Parc Monceau, 8th arrondissement, you will discover this sculpture on a stele that represents a ball player. Created in 1878, this work is the work of the sculptor Charles Lenoir. The problem is that this young man has become practically penguin. He is missing his left arm and his right hand... According to an archival image I attached, in 1976 he still had his left arm but his hand was already missing... When's a restoration? In addition, this sculpture is covered with mold and lichen, due to its location near the trees. A double renovation would be necessary. You can come by metro Line 2, station "Monceau".

  • The Monceau Park is actually an open-air museum, provided you bother to walk and look. At the bend of a Grove, one can discover this young man, alas one-armed, who tries to play marbles. He is leaning forward to look for the ideal position, the body aligned, but his right hand is more than virtual, because a stupid predator, had to delight him... Contempt is tempting for some spirits who are insensitive to art. However, Charles Lenoir (1850-1920) sculptor and Inspector of fine arts, had struggled to build this work in 1878. It was also the Gold Medal of the universal exhibitions of 1889 and 1900, beautiful list!
