Located in the botanical gardens, here you can see the statue of Buffon who was once the director of the Jarin du Roi, which were the royal botanical gardens in Paris, and these are now called the Jardin des Plantes, which now has different museums and even a menagerie zoo within its grounds.
This next picture is a more close-up photo we took of the Buffon statue, which was actually sculpted in bronze by the artist Jean Carlus in 1908, even though the statue looks far older, yet it was placed on a concrete pedestal with a short inscription within the Jardin des Plantes, in memory of this historical naturalist
The Comte de Buffon was a French naturalist born in 1707 and died in 1788, which is the name and the dates you may be able to make out on the pedestal of this statue in Paris, and he was one of the important figures in the history of the botanical gardens and wrote the Histoire Naturelle volumes that were read and influenced many throughout Europe.
