Communo Cephalite + Two

The village of Mougins is one of the most exclusive in the South of France being home across the years to many artists and celebrities including: Fernand Léger, Robert Desnos, René Clair, Isadora Duncan, Pablo Picasso, Man Ray, Christian Dior, Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf, Roland Petit, Zizi Jeanmaire, Yves Saint Laurent, Paul Anka, Jean Richepin, Robert Hossein, Catherine Deneuve, Jeanne Moreau, Roger Vivier…

This said it is also a huge tourist attraction with thousands of visitors each year, especially over the summer months.

The village itself becomes an open gallery for sculpture and in 2015 the outdoor and completely free exhibition is called ‘MONUMENTAL’.

My photograph here ‘Communo Cephalite + Two’ features the sculpture ‘Communo Cephalite’ made by the great French artist Arman in 1995 plus the heads of two tourists walking up the hill behind this bronze bust of Lenin.
