He represents a young girl standing and a young man seated, who are back to back. This sculpture is placed in the Centre of a plain earth covered with white marble pebbles and rests on a black granite base in the form of an eight-pointed star. The young man holds the baton of Justice and the ball of knowledge, while the girl, in "antique" outfit, points the finger at the mosaics of the EESC façade, made in 1992. They represent the fundamental elements: our land, origin of mankind, the first three digits and the three elementary forms (triangle, circle and square), the three Republican values "freedom equality and brotherhood" and finally " Hope ". The sculptor martial Raysse (born in 1936 on the Cote d'Azur), wants to valorize the instruction of the society in the Republican values. He is the founder of the "new realists" movement he is also a film director on societal themes. He is very eclectic in his work productions, using all the materials available. In this sculpture, he reunites with the "classic allegorical representative" which is an interesting work. It is accessible by metro station "Jena" line n ° 9.
