Pale Against The Clicks

The first time this distressed dame appeared on Paris & I was way back in the early days of 2010, when I had her complaining about the colour of the fire extinguisher - it's funny looking back on it now...

This time I offer you a full frontal, and we can marvel at the emotion which can be drawn from simple stone.

I can never quite comprehend how there never seems to have been a single false chisel stroke which accidentally removed a finger or the tip of a nose. It's not as though you can just start over as though you were screwing up a sheet of A4 and sulkily aiming it at the bin. We're talking months of work here.

Oh well, not my problem. I think this was originally stuck to the side of the Arc de Triomphe. I can't say for sure, but she's now inside at the top of a fearsome flight of stairs and others of a very similar ilk now decorate the outside, looking down wearing expressions of varying degrees of scariness and agression, befitting Napoleon's greatest victory arch.

These days she hasn't got much else to do but rail at tourists who take her picture without even asking permission and then write nonsense about her. Tough is the life of the fallen vixen warrior indeed.

And why not...
