Around the corner from the Champs-Elysées Clémenceau metro station, in the Square Jean-Perrin, stands a large oval fountain designed by sculptor François-Raoul Larche in 1910. Named Miroir d’eau, la Seine et ses affluents, it displays three allegorical groups that represent the tributaries of the Seine. Each group consists of a woman, each accompanied by two children, all evoking nine tributaries: L’Aube, Le Loing, L’Essonne, L’Yonne, L’Armançon, La Cure, L’Oise, La Marne, and Le Petit Morin.

The sculpted marble figures are shown admiring their own reflections in the water, and, at the same time, revealing their magnificent naked buttocks to real-life humans passing by.

Most of the covered passages of Paris were built in the first half of the 19th century. Essentially, they were shopping malls that led from one street to another.

Built in 1808, the Delorme passage linked rue de Rivoli at number 188 with rue Saint-Honore at number 177. It was destroyed in 1896, but several bas-relief sculptures that decorated the passage have been preserved. They can be viewed at the entrance of the apartment building at 177, rue Saint-Honoré.

All of the sculptures are of women. One bares here lovely fesses, with her tunic slipping demurely below the level of the fanny.

Imagine the joy of walking down a street in Paris, glancing up, and then spotting – high above – a beautiful sculpted fanny protruding over the base of a pediment. This is what the City of Light is all about!

This month’s bountiful booty is part of a group entitled Les Sciences by Antonin Mercié. Sculpted in the late 19th-century, it is displayed on the façade of the Sorbonne University on rue des Ecoles. Science doesn’t get any better than this!

To photograph this month’s featured fanny, we traveled out to Place de la Porte de Saint-Cloud in the farthest reaches of the 16th arrondissement. Two monumental fountains stand there, both the work of Paul Landowski. An artist of prodigious output, his sculptures can be found throughout Paris.

The fountains, entitled Les Sources de la Seine, stand 10 meters tall. They once gushed water from the top, creating a marvelous effect.

The position of one of the female figures, with her back demurely turned to us, gives us the opportunity to admire her dainty fesses. Follow the link below for a close-up view!

September 2013 – Fesses of the Month

This month’s featured fanny can be found high on the façade of the Galeries d’Anatomie Comparée et de Paléontologie, viewed from rue Buffon. It is a bronze sculpture, the work of Jules-Félix Coutan. Entitled Chasseurs d’aigles, it depicts three men who are perilously perched on a cliff and are fighting for their lives against an angry eagle. They have already shot its companion in the neck with an arrow and have stolen two of its chicks.

The position of one of the men, twisting and falling backward, gives us the opportunity to admire his handsome fesses. Follow the link below for a close-up view!
