You probably also noticed in the previous tip that there are a great many statues in the Tuileries gardens. The style ranges from the very formal and traditional to the modernistic. Wandering around looking at them provides yet another reason to spend some time there.

Spare a thought for the poor statues though. Placed there for your interest and enjoyment, they need to endure all kinds of weather and all kinds of indignities. No wonder the young statue in the main photo appears to be yelling for the statue with the stick to swat the pigeon! Then there is the modernistic couple in photo 2 with no privacy of any kind. It's tough being a statue!
