We found this month’s featured fanny on a pediment high above boulevard des Italiens in the 2nd arrondissement. The allegorical figure to whom these fesses belong is part of a group sculpted by Camille Lefèvre in 1880-1883.

August 2013 – Fesses of the Month

Beautiful fesses are displayed in the most surprising places in Paris! This month’s featured fanny can be found on the lintel above the entrance way to an apartment building at 20, rue de Longchamp in the 16th arrondissement. The alluring mermaids that flaunt their beauty there were sculpted by Jean-Désiré Ringel d’Illzach (1849 – 1916).
