Another one of the sculptures from the Arc de Triomphe. This work by Antoine Etex is so stylized that it looks like Art Deco.

I love this work and the one featured yesterday (La Marseillaise), but the other two main sculptures are static and rather dull. Just more proof that war is more interesting than peace.
