This close up photo of the Charlemagne statue below, shows the detailed work that went into this equestrian statue, which was designed by the two sculptor brothers Charles and Louis Rochet in the late 1870s, however, as you can also see from this picture of the statue, it actually looks far older than many others in the city that date back even further.
