This first HD photo shows the statue called Le Matin, which in English translates to The Morning, which was produced back in 1937 for the new Palais de Chaillot that was part of the work conducted for the World Fair in Paris that year.
This next close up photo shows the top part of the female figure as though she is trying to wring her hair out as though she has just washed first thing in the morning, hence the name of this art work.
Yet here you can see a panoramic photo looking from the base of the statue located in the square called the Parvis des Droits de l'Homme, up to the statue and beyond to the top of the enormous windows on the north eastern wing of the Palais de Chaillot.
Talking of the Parvis des Droits de l'Homme, this is the square located in between the two wings of the Palais de Chaillot, but was only renamed this in 1985, so many still think of this as the Esplanade du Trocadero, and it is in this area that you will see Le Matin along with seven other golden statues.
You will find that all of the statues were made in bronze, but then covered in a golden colour, with four on either side of the square and this particular statue of The Morning is located on the left hand side as you are looking towards the Eiffel Tower from this impressive vantage point.
Therefore, as you are looking towards the Eiffel tower, Le Matin is actually the third statue along on the left hand side, and you will find that each one of these golden statues was produced by a different artist in readiness for the Universal Exhibition.
So this particular statue of Le Matin was produced by an artist called Pryas, as you can see from this close up photo showing his name engraved on to the circular base of the statue.
But although this artist used the name Pryas, he was actually born in Bordeaux in 1891 with the name of Jean Paris, and the majority of his works were always in bronze, just like The Morning statue.
However, Jean Paris, or Pryas, was a very little known French sculptor, and even his year of death varies depending upon what sources you read, some saying it was in Nogent-sur-Marne on the outskirts of Paris in 1982 and other places state 1985.
Yet in this photograph you can see the lady is holding a robe or towel in her right hand, which is an allegorical feature of this golden statue at Palais de Challot called Le Matin, or The Morning.
