Now this close up HD photo shows the skill and workmanship that went into producing the stone statue, which was sculpted by the artist Gustave Crauk, who was born in Valenciennes in 1827, and he had a very distinguished career as a sculptor, with even a museum opened in his memory in the same town, which is where he also passed away in the November of 1905.

And this last image shows a close up of the plaque at the base of the statue dedicated to Sebastien Le Prestre de Vauban, Seigneur de Vauban and later the Marquis de Vauban, although he was normally just known as Vauban, and born in 1633 he is recognised for his engineering expertise in building fortifications and also breaking into enemy ones, and although his remains were scattered during the French revolution, his heart was found and is now interred with a tomb at Les Invalides.
