This is an angled photograph we took of the statue of J J Rousseau, who died in Ermenonville in the Oise department of Picardy, however, in 1794 his remains were removed and he was interred within The Pantheon, which is the building you can see a part of behind.

This is a view looking east along the Place du Pantheon towards the Rue Clotilde, and in this image you can see the stone statue positioned on top of the stone pedestal, or base, which was put in place in 1952 a few years after the original bronze statue was melted down during the occupation of Paris in World War II.

Stone base inscription of J J Rousseau 1712 - 1778
Now we took this close up photograph showing the base of the statue with the name J J Rousseau along with his birth and death years inscribed, who was actually born in Geneva on 28th June 1712, yet as we mentioned previously, he died in Ermenonville, which was just days after his birthday, on 2nd July 1778.
Back of the Jean-Jacques Rousseau statue
So in this last photo you can see another view of the statue from behind looking in a westerly direction towards the building that is home to the Mayor of the 5th Arrondissement, and to give you another perspective, The Pantheon where Jean Jacques Rousseu is now interred, is to the right of the image.
