This first HD photo shows the bronze statue called L'Ami de Personne, which in English roughly translates to The Person Friend, although sometimes it gets referred to as Nobody's Friend.
Now this has been sculpted in bronze to look almost like a human, or even alien type of shape and is also like a disfigured man, which has a sad looking face as though he wants someone to talk to, hence the two variations in the name of this abstract sculpture.
So this photograph shows a different angles of the large bronze abstract statue, which was sculpted in 1992 by Erik Dietman, yet it was not installed within the Jardin des Tuileries until 1999 and only officially inaugurated in 2000 in the presence of the artist and the Minister of Culture.
Yet here you can see more of the surroundings of where the statue is located within the Tuileries Gardens, which is in an area known as the Grand Couvert, and has been positioned within the Nord-Est Bosquet, or North East Grove, and the chair facing L'Ami de Personne to the left of the image, is actually part of the sculpture.
However, this photo shows the back of L'Ami de Personne, which was sculpted by Erik Dietman, who was born in Sweden in 1937, but being forced to leave Sweden in 1959, he ended up settling in Paris, France where he ended up meeting many other artists, that open the doors for exhibitions of his works.
Erik Dietman produced numerous different styles of art works in many different materials that included marble, stone and bronze like this one of The Person Friend that you can see here an oversized person almost imploring someone to sit down on the chair facing him, as though he wants a friend.
So you will find that many of the abstract sculptures by Erik Dietman have been designed to be thought provoking for the onlooker, like you can see here as though the disfigured person is looking at the empty chair with a sad face, almost beckoning with his left hand for someone to sit down in this statue referred to as Nobody's Friend.
But as you can tell there was red and white tape surrounding the bronze statue of L'Ami de Personne, which was the same for other areas of the Grand Couvert within the Tuileries Gardens due to the amount of work being undertaken to ensure the continued heritage of this historical former royal garden that receives millions of tourists each year.
And in this image you can see an information board, which was detailing much of the work that was being undertaken within the Jardin des Tuileries and written in French, English and Spanish, it was also referring to this bronze sculpture called L'Ami de Personne that was being moved, along with the replanting of trees, new flowerbeds, etc.
