The Pickaxe on which he relied was missing. It is the work of the sculptor Jean Jules Pendariès, native of the Tarn and deceased in 1933. It is unfortunate that this statue has been the victim of several tags and the dates of its blister have been modified...

I do not know if there is a direct connection, but it is right in front of the building of the "House of Steelworkers". Perhaps she gave ideas to the Steelworkers, who were coming out of their meeting place. One sees a muscular man, almost naked, sitting on a rock, his head bent and the Chin leaning on the hands joined, resting on a virtual medium. Indeed the Pickaxe, which served him as a support, disappeared!!! On the catalogue of works, from the Academy of architecture of 1909-1912, you can see the complete statue with the Pickaxe that is depicted. This work carved in a block of white marble, is by Jules Pendariès (1862-1933) and dates from 1906. . It was presented at the Salon of French artists in 1907, but was only placed in this place in 1925, after being exhibited at the Petit Palais. Note that this place honors the workers, because Jean Pierre Timbaud (1904-1941) was a Parisian metallurgist and then a trade union activist CGT. He was shot by the Nazis in 1941, after being active in the resistance. This statue is accessible by metro station "crowns" line no. 2. The rue Jean Pierre Timbaud is right next to the Metro's mouth.
