Angel of the Month

The delights of Paris are in the details.  Here, an angelic cherub romps playfully astride a lion, gaily taming it by stuffing a flower garland into its mouth. Gustave Germain's low-relief sculpture adorns the entrance staircase to the science museum, the Palais de la Decouverte.  It forms part of the Grand Palais, inaugurated in 1900 to receive visitors to the millennium World’s Fair in Paris.
