Statue of the bridge Mirabeau

Credit : Gérard Delafond

The sculpture, commanded Antoine Injalbert, was limited to piles. The program is traditional: side left bank, two feminine allegories embody the Business and the Abundance whereas, on the other side, two faces symbolize the one, the City of Paris and the other one, the Navigation. The dynamism of faces, the movement of which with regard to the river is reversed of a bank in the other, contrasting with the rigorous prescription of the bridge. The effect produces two nymphs go back up the river whereas two others lower it.
