Ange-Jacques Gabriel
Mascaron, Place de la Bourse
Bordeaux, France (1730-1775)
The Place de la Bourse was constructed in the 18th century as Bordeaux’s open city square (contrasting the Medieval walls elsewhere in the city) — a local center of commerce adjacent to the river.
I visited Bordeaux last summer and snapped this picture. According to the tour guide, this ornamental sculpture was a tribute to the slave trade that helped build the city (make of that what you will). Other mascarons of African slaves (which also displayed individualized features) were interspersed among prominent contemporary and mythological European figures lining the Place de la Bourse.
