Le Printemps Golden Statue Inside Jardins Du Trocadero

There were many different sculptors of the time that were commissioned to produce statues for the palace and the Trocadero Gardens, and these eight golden statues were each produced by a different artist, with four on each wing, and if you are looking at the Eiffel Tower from the square in front, this one would be to the right hand side.

Les Fruits Golden Statue Inside Jardins Du Trocadero

You will find that the square in between the two wings where the gilded bronze statues are positioned is known by different names including the Esplanade du Trocadero, yet it was officially renamed the Esplanade des droits de l'homme, which in English translates to the Esplanade of Rights of Man, in other words, the Terrace of Human Rights.
