Jean Moulin monument five statues in Jardin des Champs Elysees
This first HD photo shows five separate sculptures that all have a meaning and are all part of the Monument to Jean Moulin, which is called Hommage a Jean Moulin in French, and he is the most recognised person of the French resistance during World War II.
Bronze statues of Jean Moulin monument by sculptor Goerges Jeanclos
You will find that this monument was produced by Georges Jeanclos who was born in Paris in 1933 to a Jewish family, which meant that during World War II he was in hiding with his family during the Nazi occupation of France, and this was one of the major influences on his work as a French sculptor, but having won the Prix de Rome in 1959 his discovery of Etruscan art whilst in Rome also became an influence.

So each one of the five bronze sculptures is designed to represent a specific theme, and these are Tears, The Whisper of the Resistance, The Silent Imprisonment, Disappearance and Rebirth, which was produced in either 1983 or 1984 depending upon what sources you read, and then installed within the Jardin des Champs Elysees in the same year.

And here you can see the plaque located in front of the monument, and as you can see it states the year of birth of Jean Moulin being 1899 along with his year of death, being 1943, which came from injuries sustained while being tortured by the Germans.

Now Jean Moulin was actually the founder and president of the National Council of the Resistance who reported to General Charles de Gaulle and managed to bring together several groups to operate as one during World War II, and although he went under several different aliases and false names, Jean Moulin was still captured and died.

He has been classed as the main hero of the French Resistance and is recognised for always wearing a specific style of hat along with a scarf round his neck to hide the scar from when Jean Moulin was first arrested and tried to commit suicide, so this is why you can see a small bust of him on the Monumnet to Jean Moulin, which is the fourth statue, or second from the right hand side.
