Bas relief sculpture NE wing of Palais de Chaillot, Paris
The Palais de Chaillot was constructed for the 1937 World Fair in Paris at the same at the same time as the Jardins du Trocadero were re-laid out, and different statues and sculptures were commissioned this area.

So on the facades of the two curved wings of the Palais de Chaillot you will see different bas reliefs produced by different artists, and each has a specific theme, with this particular one being sculpted by Rene Collamarini, as you can see from where his surname is inscribed onto the bottom right hand corner of this sculpture.
Relief sculpture by Rene Collamarini
Yet here you can see a close up photo showing the top part of the bas relief sculpted by Rene Collamarini, who was born in Paris in 1904 and studied under Jean Boucher at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, becoming a professor in direct carving at the school between the years of 1958 and 1974.

And although he produced this stone relief sculpture, he is probably most well known for the three hundred puppets that Gaston Baty, the director of the Theatre Montparnasse, commissioned him to produce, some of which are now held within the Department of Arts and Entertainment at the Biblioteque Nationale de France.
