Picasso in St Germain des Pres

Did you know that sitting in a tiny park, nestled next to the church of St Germain des Prés, is a statue by Pablo Picasso? Made of bronze and offered by Picasso to the city of Paris in 1959, it is the head of Dora Maar, and is dedicated to his friend the poet Guillaume Apollinaire.

Dora Maar and Pablo Picasso are said to have met on the terrace of the Deux Magots café just nearby.
