reading manAnother favourite statue: Le jardinier du mont des oliviers, or the Gardener of the Mount of Olives by a French artist, Martial Raysse. The statue and the mount of olives is part of the beautiful Place d’Assas, remade (?) in 1989, with more statues and fountains. And the book that the man is reading under the olive trees, is said to be the book of wisdom.

Spring is definitely here: at the moment the foliage of the micocouliers is amazingly light green!
