Square du Ranelagh - Jean de la Fontaine



The poet Jean de la Fontaine spent almost three decades
writing his version of 243 fables. 
This statue in Square du Ranelagh shows him regardant à ses pieds
le Corbeau et le Renard, one of his revered fables.

A very grand memorial Genie. He must have been fond of his faithful servant eagerly waiting at his feet.

Oh, that is a marvelous work!

That was a brilliant idea the sculptor had to include the fox and the crow. Nice one, Genie --
