Trio of sculptures in Place d’Assas, Nîmes, August 2018

In Place d’Assas, two monumental heads designed in 1989 by the painter and sculptor Martial Raysse, face each other across the square. They represent Nemausa, the spring forming the origin of Nîmes, but out of shot, and the god Nemausus, the male force of the city. Between them stand two humans in awe of the gods.
