Qu'est-ce que c'est?

Beautiful color and detail, 
but what is this?

If you know what, 
you will surely guess where.

Paris, bien sûr!

This 'ornamentation' looks like it is on the barrel of something 'military', so I will guess over by Les Invalides. This is a wild guess!

Trust the French to make sure that the thing they plan to use to kill you is beautiful.

Interesting, I'm curious.

Ah, you guessed - bravo! These are the beautiful canons in the courtyard of Hôtel des Invalides. There are different styles and the artistry is amazing. Don't you love that verdigris green?

Many thanks to all, and I was tardy on my post today.

I would have assumed naval, anyway! Rather pretty.
