This rather bizarre sculpture is to be found in a typically Parisian little square bearing the jaunty name of Square Paul Painlevé (Paul Risenbread!)
It's all to do with some Roman legend, which I no expert on, about a couple of twins being nursed by a she-wolf. Whatever the origins it makes you look twice and I'd be interested to hear a parent explaining to their curious kids just what it's supposed to represent.
There are apparently versions of this statue all over the place, the world I mean, and it's this sort of thing that adds to the charm of the place and livens up an afternoon stroll around the city. But then you knew that, didn't you?
