Overview

Le Pouce is a marvellous gilded bronze sculpture created by César in 1988. It can be found near the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Bonneveine shopping center, by a roundabout very close to the sea. The sculpture sits more precisely between two roundabouts. The first is Professeur de Vernejoul Roundabout, where the 15m tall Mât des Fédérés statue built by Daniel Burien stands to commemorate the 500 federalists who defended Paris in 1792. The second, is the Bonnefon Roundabout, which is home to the One O'Clock statue, created by a young sculptor named Mark di Suvero from New York.
