  • This bronze sculpture was conducted by César (1921-1998). It is located place Michel Debré in the sixth arrondissement. 4.7 meters high sculpture represents a Centaur: a creature of Mythology Greek with a body of horse and a bust of man. The man's head is that of Caesar who represented himself. This work is a homage to Picasso (master and friend of Caesar). In fact, at first Caesar had considered represent the head of Picasso, but he eventually opted for a self-portrait. Caesar used materials recovered at the dump of scrap (nuts, bolts, shovel, rake, tubes, rods,...) to make this sculpture. He then sank them in bronze. A dove of peace is placed on the left hand of the imaginary creature. A small statue of liberty lies in the breastplate of the beast. The tail of the animal is composed of a shovel and a rake. This delusional creature deserves to be seen. This work is one of the most beautiful sculptures of Caesar or one of the less horrible.

  • The Centaur of the artist Caesar place Michel Debré, at the corner of the streets of Sèvres and of looking for Midi in District 6. This Centaur of 5 m high on pedestal, made in bronze with nuts, with objects of everyday life, represents a body of horse with a human head and bust that Caesar has had, in his usual, the idea to represent! It dates from 1983 and was inaugurated on October 10, 1985. Caesar dedicates it to Pablo Picasso, which is represented on the visor over the head mask, still some winks to Œil, favorite artist. In observing this work well, you can see dear Caesar symbols, like the dove of peace that holds the left hand and more subtle, a mini Statue of liberty, hidden in the breastplate. Observe carefully! This work is accessible by the metro station "Sèvres Babylone" lines No. 10 and 12.
