Monument Du Marechal Gallieni By Jean Boucher

With this photo you can see the bronze statue called Monument du Marechal Gallieni, which was created in memory of Joseph Simon Gallieni, who was a French soldier who played an important role in Madagascar and later in World War I and the First Battle of the Marne, who was later awarded the title of Marshal of France.

It was in 1920 that a commission was formed to have a monument erected dedicated to Marechal Gallieni, and the artist chosen for the project was Benet, however, the sculpture was classed as too modest for the city, and another artist Jean Boucher was then commissioned for the bronze statue and stone pedestal with its allegories that you can see in this photo.

This statue and monument by Jean Boucher was sculpted in 1926 and was originally placed on the Esplanade des Invalides, however, because of the 1937 World Fair in Paris, it was moved to its current location at Place Vauban, and the stone pedestal you can see in this image, actually has four different cariatides, which are allegories representing major phases in the life of Gallieni.

To discover the bronze Marechal Gallieni statue for yourself, it is located at Place Vauban in the 7th Arrondissement of Paris very close to the south side of Hotel des Invalides, which is the same side you will find the golden Eglise du Dome roof.
