Statues have stories, don’t they?

There are so many statues in Paris, in gardens, on bridges, in museums, on terraces and in doorways (see previous blog), everywhere. Here are just a few and their stories, or the stories we imagined they have:
No, silly, I said put your RIGHT leg out
- statues in a lake in Jardin des Tuileries

Doh! I forgot her birthday again!
statue of Cain in Jardin des Tuileries
OK, if I drop this robe will you notice ME,
instead of that great monument behind me?
Statue de Cincinnatus, Jardin des Tuileries

We couldn't figure out where this had dropped from!
but it landed in Jardin des Tuileries

Shaking his tail feather
le Faune Dansart in Jardin du Luxembourg

There there kitty, boy stroking a lion
on the Pont Alexandre III bridge,
in the shadow of a gold Pegasus
What a surprise to see Winston in Paris
- just as he strode down the Champs Elysees
with Charles de Gaulle
