La Foule

One of the many works of art you’ll wander past as you stroll through the Paris’ Jardin des Tuileries is La Foule, or The Crowd. This bronze sculpture was created by English-born, Paris-based painter sculptor, Raymond Mason, back in the mid-1960′.

It was later purchased by France’s National Fund of Contemporary Art, before being installed in the park in 2000.

As you can see, the sculpture takes the form of a number of human figures clumped together in a tight pattern.
