The angels of Paris turn up in the most unexpected places. . .In the courtyard of the 8th district’s mayor’s office, formerly the home of Jean-Francois Cail, presides a large fountain featuring a trio of a female figure, a cherub and a winged baby angel. Cail rose from modest origins to become one of the most powerful industrialists of his century, involved in the construction of steam engines, locomotives and machines for sugar refinery. Symbols of Cail's success are incorporated in the courtyard sculpture – images of gears, and a mallet held in the little angel’s hand. (circa 1865-1867)
Hotel Cail, courtyard of the Mairie du 8ème arrondissement, 3, rue de Lisbonne (Metro: Saint Augustin)
