Now, as we mentioned, this HD photo shows one of the statues on the Beauvais Rotunda, which is dedicated to a person called Denis Papin, and this was sculpted in 1857 by the French sculptor Jean Francois Soitoux, which can be discovered on the first level of statues, second from the left as you are looking at the facade from the Cour Napoleon.
This close up photograph showing the base of the statue with the inscription of Denis Papin, that the statue is dedicated to, and he was a was a French physicist, mathematician and inventor, born in 1647 and is most well known for his pioneering invention of the steam digester, which was the forerunner of the steam engine and the pressure cooker, yet he is presumed to have died destitute and buried in a paupers grave around 1712.
