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!
