Default A little bit of History...

Just discovered this one. The story behind it explains this odd sculpture. It's on the grave of Victor Noir, journalist and polemist(1848-1870), killed in a duel by Prince Pierre Bonaparte. He had the reputation of beeing a "don juan", with many mistresses. This sculpture is supposed to be a good-luck charm when you touch it! Evidently, the legend still works!
