HD photos of Monument Des Droits De L'Homme in Paris France - Page 1



When visiting some of the more well known tourist attractions in Paris, you will probably come across some of lesser known landmarks that you never planned to visit, or even knew they existed, which is exactly what happened when we were walking through the Champ de Mars gardens on the left hand side towards the Ecole Militaire, that we came across the Monument des Droits de L'Homme, and as you can see from these photos it is hidden within the trees.

Photo of Monument des Droits de L'Homme in the Champ de Mars gardens

Monument des Droits de L'Homme


Here you can see one of the more unusual monuments in Paris, which is called the Monument des Droites de l'Homme, or translated it is basically the Monument to the Rights of Man, and this is a human rights monument, which as you can tell from this photo we took, is based on an old temple and actually looks a lot older than it really is, yet is in a tranquil area with lots of park benches to sit and relax while surrounded by greenery.

Situated within the Champ de Mars, the Monument des Droits de l'Homme is referred to by many as a Masonic monument in Paris, which has several different references to Freemasons including a triangle with three points that is is located on the side you can see in this photo we took that faces the gardens and above this is an inscription, however, this is not able to be seen very clearly due to the discolouration and deterioration of this temple and unusual human rights monument.

The Monument des Droits de l'Homme was designed by the Czech sculptor Ivan Theimer and is based on an old Egyptian temple with two obelisks at the front of it, yet as you can tell from this image, there are different statues, and sculptures such as the bronze cauldron along with reliefs on this unusual monument as well, and this was put in place within the Champ de Mars park in Paris on the 200th anniversary of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen.

This is a close up photo we took of one of the bronze statues showing a women and young boy only wearing a hat, which is located at the front of the Monument des Droits de l'Homme, however, if you look closely at the image, you will also see that there is a small statue situated within a recess in the obelisk as well, and the obelisk itself also has lots of markings of signs, symbols and texts including the Declaration of Human Rights.

Statue Of Man In A Toga


We took this photo of the second main statue of a man wearing a toga, which is located opposite the other bronze statue of a woman and child, but you can also see a part of the second obelisk with its many signs, symbols and texts, which are located on the front of the Monument des Droits de l'Homme and was designed by the architect and sculptor Ivan Theimer in recognition of the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen, which was drawn up at Chateaux Versailles in 1789 and was a fundamental part of the French Revolution.

Side View Of Monument des Droits de L'Homme


This is a side view we took of the Monument des Droits de l'Homme and in this image you can see some of the stone reliefs along with six squares further down that depict different cities and although these are very hard to make out in this photo, a couple of them on this south west facing side include famous places such as Amsterdam and Luxembourg, yet the opposite site also has different cities listed including Paris.

Human Rights Monument 1989


As you can tell from this high definition photo we took of the Monument des Droits de l'Homme, on the side of this monument in the Champ de Mars garden that faces the Rue de Belgrade, you can see two columns located either side of a bronze door and in front there is a bronze cauldron, yet because of how this monument has aged over a short period of time, anyone would think that it had been situated here for many years, but this human rights monument was only put in place in 1989.

We also took this photo of the Monument des Droits de l'Homme while we were walking through the Champ de Mars garden from the Eiffel Tower, which at the time we did not even know existed, yet in fact we found out later that this very little known human rights monument was inaugurated in 1989 on the anniversary of the Declaration of Rights of Man and Citizen and can be found on the left hand side of the park as you are going towards the Ecole Militaire.
