  What the he** did this crazy sculptor had in mind?
by OrlandoBR

The Palais Royal was built in the 17th century for Cardinal Richelieu, then became property of the royal family, having served as the residence of Louis XVI during his childhood. Nowadays it houses the Conseil de l'État, a government office, and is not open to the public. Right behind it, before the gardens, there are some controversial modern sculptures of questionable taste, the "Colonnes de Buren"...
