Èze, France

The tiny mountaintop commune of Èze, France is just a short distance from Nice.  It commands a breathtaking view of the French Riviera.  Its narrow streets wind up and down between quaint shops and restaurants.  The sculpture of Marie by Jean-Philippe Richard, given to the commune in April 2009 is a “Statue representing femininity, head turned to the stars and the feet rooted in the earth; it is the link of union between the symbolic world and the real world, it is both reassuring and humble in a world hard and unstable.”
