  • This is something to see if walking by but not that great to make a trip to see or diversion. Could do with more info on what it was etc  more »
  • The statue of the great Assistant is very strange but after all, she is facing the Centre Pompidou, even so strange

  • This bronze statue or rather this monument, is located since 1996, right next to the Centre Pompidou at the crossroads of the streets Rambuteau and Brantôme in the District of the clock. On a high base of stacking square pieces, with asperities, there is a small man with arms spread, which the German artist Max Ernst (1891-1976) qualified as humanoid, when he realizes it in 1967. He looks at the Centre Pompidou, because it is a work that the artist donated to the Museum in 1975 Max Ernst is part of the Dada and surreal movement, who is fascinated by magic and fantasy worlds, often drawing bird men, like his obsession! The humanoid, seen here, has a sharp nose and stretches its arms as if to attempt an unlikely flight! Beautiful original work, which does not leave indifferent. The explanation of the name of this work "the great Assistant" can be explained by referring to the totem of ancient peoples, because it also bears the name of "great genius", great by the height where it is and may be due to its spiritual power, but small by its di mension (1m59)
