Place de la République

Following are the photographs of the Place de la République ( Republic Square), a monument dedicated to the Republic of France, set in between the 3rd,10th and 11th arrondissement of Paris.

On top stands the bronze statue of Marianne, anti-monarchy and a symbolic representation of French Republic with an olive branch in the right hand and the left hand placed on a tablet engraved with Rights of Men (Droits de l’homme). Below is a sculpture of lion who protects the ballot box.
A view from the right side. The three statues below Marianne stand for liberty, equality and fraternity, the three values of French republic.
To her left is the entrance to the metro station upon which the monument to Marianne stands.
