Hautes Herbes sculpture by Beatrice Guichard
This first HD photo shows the contemporary art work called Hautes Herbes, which when translated into English means High Herbs or Tall Grass depending upon the type of translation service you use, and this sculpture consists of eight rods made of steel that are between just over 2 metres and up to an impressive 3 metres in height.

Also, if you look carefully at the steel rods, you will find that these look like they are bending over in the wind, and one side has been coloured gold, whereas the other is silver, which can provide an unusual effect in different light conditions.

Now this next image shows the location of the contemporary styled modern art sculpture by Beatrice Guichard that was put in place in 2003, which is located at the Place du Louvre between the front of the Eglise Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois church and the famous tourist attraction of the Musee du Louvre, which would be behind us.
Modern art sculpture Hautes Herbes
So Beatrice Guichard is a French sculptor, painter and designer that bases virtually all of her creations upon nature, which is why this is called Hautes Herbes, and as you can see from this photograph, the steel rods look like they are coming directly out of the ground and look like Tall Grass or High Herbs.

And Beatrice Guichard works on her creations for most of the year in Northern France at her studio in Boulogne, yet spends some time each year in the south of France, no doubt for warmer weather, and has produced numerous art works some of which are displayed in different places throughout France.
Plaque for Hautes Herbes sculpture
This last image shows the plaque that is located on the ground in between the steel rods, which provides the name of the artist, being Beatrice Guichard, the title of the sculpture, the material used that states Acier in French, which translates to steel as we mentioned earlier, along with the date that this was put in place, being 2003.
