Taureau et Daim (Bull and Deer)

Trocadero Gardens
The Jardins du Trocadero were first designed by the engineer Jean-Charles Adolphe Alphand back in the 1800s when Baron Haussmann was redeveloping the city, and yet, these gardens in Paris were redesigned again for the 1937 World Fair, and as you can see from this HD photo, they are in a prominent position with fabulous views of the Eiffel Tower, which is one of the reasons they have become such a popular tourist attraction, especially at dusk when people are waiting for the illuminations and when this image was taken.
This is a photo we took of the bronze statue called the Taureau et Daim, which translates to Bull and Deer and positioned within a square basin with its own water feature that is part of the Jardins du Trocadero, this was sculpted by Paul Jouve when the gardens and the Trocadero fountains were redesigned, and there is another animal statue situated in another basin opposite at the same elevation.
