  • If you go through the garden of plants in front of the Gallery of evolution, in a space called "the corner of the Robinier" you will be surprised to see an old gentleman, seated, very little clothed draped in the ancient Greek style, observing with attention and perplexity an egg , which he holds in his left hand. It was in the nineteenth century, the dilemma of the origin of life "the first egg or the hen"?? This work is by the artist Jean Louis Désiré Schroeder (1828-1898) and naturally found his place near the Gallery of evolution, where it is then today, easy to find the answer to this question. Because the hen did not appear suddenly, nor the egg either, but is an element of a long evolution since the origin of living beings (SIC) in seeking may be wrong, I found no trace of the name of the sculptor on the pedestal. As for the title, it is obvious.

  • As you walk through the garden of plants, you will have the opportunity to meet this beautiful marble sculpture, created in 1890 and titled "Science and mystery". It is the work of Parisian artist Jean Louis Désiré Schroeder, who died in his hometown in 1898. She represents a Sage, meditating on the mystery of creation and life, holding an egg in his left hand. A beautiful representation.
