Gare de Lyon and l'Electiricite sculpture
Now as we mentioned before, the l'Electricite sculpture was produced by the artist Paul Gasq in 1899, and located by the first floor on the front facade of the Gare de Lyon, this is one of the four different allegorical statues found on the train station, and each one of these refer to different elements of progress and modernity within industry and transport.
