The historic guillotine of the french revolution, in the centre of Concorde square, was replaced by an obelisk from Luxor, offered by the Egyptian viceroy.

With original carvings, it's suffering from pollution. The works of transfer and installation are represented in the base, with gilded images.

Address: Metro 1, 13 : Concorde
