dedication of the renovated fountain Max Ernst

After over a year of work, the fountain and its new plaza were formally dedicated on Sunday.  The title of this work is "Aux cracheurs, aux drôles, au génie" which I will translate as "To the fire breathers, to the jokers, to the genius".  The latter may be a reference to Leonardo Da Vinci who, like Max Ernst, lived for awhile in this area.  

Here is a view of it from April 2013.


  1. these remind me of when people stack rocks on top of each other...i know there's a name for it but i can't think of it!
