Another amazing animal in Paris! A T-Rex!

Since last march 2013, a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex occupied the "Port de la Conférence" on the river Seine, near the bridge of "l'Alma" ("Pont de l'Alma").
It is a 7 meter sculpture made in aluminium and silvered chrome by the artist Philippe Pasqua for the "Compagnie des Bateaux-Mouches", well-known parisian touristic boats.
By this sculpture, the lady who manages the "Bateaux-Mouches" company wants to promote Contemporary Art along the river.
