So this last image shows a close up of the base of the statue dedicated to Jean-Jacques Rousseau who was born on 28th June 1712 in Geneva and became a philosopher, writer, and composer.

And it was his political philosophy that influenced the Enlightenment in France and across Europe, as well as aspects of the French Revolution and the overall development of modern political and educational thought, yet he was also a composer of music and classed as a national hero, his remains were removed from their original burial site and placed within the Pantheon in Paris in 1794, which was 16 years after his death.
