Jardin des Tuileries
This last Sunday afternoon was warm although the sun was low and clouds sometimes obscured the sun. Many people walked in the ancient garden Jardin des Tuileries, that extends from the Louvre to Place de la Concorde along the rue de Rivoli.
Jardin des Tuileries was sponsored by Catherine de Médicis, a very influential woman throughout Europe who was the Queen of France and the mother of three further kings. Today the garden is a popular destination for Parisians and tourists alike.
Home of many statues and classic works of art, I found it strange to see a new artwork in the middle of a fountain that is usually surrounded by families, their children sailing colorful model boats. Families and ducks had relocated to other more classical waters.
