The Seven Statues of The Massena Square (Nice, France)


Large luminous statues shining in the sky above the square.

Some called them Buddhas, others prayers, some love them, others find them ugly. Nobody is indifferent to them! The seven resin statues on Massena square – Nice’s geographic centre – were created by Jaume Plensa, Spanish artist specialized in monumental art.

These seven characters represent seven continents and the communication between the different communities of today’s society. The name of this creation is “conversation à Nice”. Plus, the statues are illuminated every night, colors are changing smoothly to emulated a dialog between them, it’s very beautiful and poetic.
