There are 60 sculptures, statues and monuments in la Défense and Igor Mitoraj’s sculpture Tindaro is one of my favourites. It is so well positioned in front of the KPMG building that it would seem that the building was built to honour the sculpture. As you walk around la Défense you’ll see a variety of interesting sculptures by dozens of artists, it’s a giant outdoor gallery of some beautiful works of many different styles. It’s nice to see such a blend of art and commerce and if you are a fan of architecture and art then take the time to wander around and make sure you stop by Espace Info Défense near the giant sculpture by Miro to pick up a map of the area and get some information about what there is to see and do from the very friendly people that work there.
