L'ours polaire du jardin Darcy

L'ours polaire, gardien du jardin Darcy est l'oeuvre du célèbre sculpteur François Pompon (même si ce n'est qu'une reproduction). Francois Pompon (9 mai 1855-6 mai 1933) était un sculpteur français (ayant travaillé avec Auguste Rodin). Il est connu pour ses sculptures animalières, exposées notamment au Musée d'Orsay. Son style est caractérisé par la lissité et la simplification.

I don't know if they were kidding or not, but when I was in San Francisco a few years ago, a couple of locals actually asked me if it was true that we had to fight polar bears in the streets in Norway. :-)
