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.
