  • It is a central median covered with white pebbles. On this median is a base with a star motif where there is a man sitting and a woman standing. There are also two columns. In conclusion, for this monument, I did not see doves? I recommend visiting the EESC, except July and August, as there are organized tours to ask for more explanations about this work.

  • In the 16th arrondissement, 9 place D'iéna, this sculpture is implanted on the square of the Palais d'iena where since 1959 the "social and environmental economic Council", which since June 2018, as part of a reform, has taken the name of " Forum of the Republic ". This building classified to the historical monuments has its page on T.A. where the presence with photos of this sculpture is also mentioned. Currently, all the Bay Windows and the entrance door of the "Forum of the Republic" are obstructed by wooden panels, certainly due to work... The bronze sculpture, titled "Sol et Colombe" or "the birth of thought", is laid on a star-shaped granite base resting on a solid Earth covered with white marble pebbles. It represents a couple back to back separated by two columns. The seated man holds in his left hand the sphere of knowledge and in his right the baton of righteousness. As for the woman, she shows from the index of her right hand the mosaic panels integrated in the rotunde façade of the building of the "Forum of the Republic". This work created in 1992 is due to the native sculptor of golf Juan martial Raysse. Contemporary art. You can come by metro line 6, station "Boissière" or lines 6, 9 station "Trocadero" or line 9 station "Alma Marceau".
