Prometheus by Ossip Zadkine in Paris by Beausoleil Star this if you like it!

Ossip Zadkine, a Russian sculptor, studied at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. This is his bronze of Prometheus completed in 1956 and installed at Place Saint-Germain-des-Prés beside the famous café Les Deux Magots and across from the beautiful church of Saint-Germain-des-Prés. In mythology Prometheus stole fire from the gods to be used by humans and in this statue Zadkine has pictured him as he is holding the fire. I first saw the statue in 1996 and have revisited it many times. This last trip we managed to visit the Zadkine Museum, one of the free museums in Paris.
