Façade de 34, rue Pasquier

Not all of the elephants
seen in Paris are on carrousels

There was a rather famous one known as
the Elephant of the Bastille, a monument which existed
between 1813 and 1846 and was memorialized by
Victor Hugo in his novel, Les Misérables.

34, rue Pasquier

What a nice monument at a special place, as if he is coming out of the building.

I wonder what motivated the architect or owner to put an elephant there.

It certainly seems like he's emerging from the building.
