Tom Shooting Sculpture on Sorbonne

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!
