Palais Royal


In the courtyard of the Palais Royal these black and white columns are a scultpure by an artist called "Buren" created in 1986. They have been restored and reopenned to public last month. I like them with the snow.

Ah !
Les travaux sont enfin terminés !
C'est tout de même plus beaux qu'avec les palissafes.

I love the repetition of "all the columns" caught in your photo.

Were you and Eric out making photos together? He showed this sculpture a day or so ago. Nice in the snow!!

I commented on Eric's blog too. (I thought they were Christmas decorations being packed away). I generally love old and new together, but I am not sure about this columns. I will have to check them out next time I am in Paris.

Love the shot. The modern against the classical and under snow. Fabulous!
