  • The Weight of Oneself is a very nice and meaningful sculpture emerging from the river right in front of the Appeals Court of Lyon. This is one of those things you "accidentally" find while wandering around the city and then you find yourself contemplating it for a few minutes. I recommend crossing the pedestrian bridge that's right beside the sculpture, it has amazing views of the court, the sculpture and the river.
  • Una de las esculturas más bellas y conceptualmente profundas de las que pueblan el borde del río Saona, es sin dudas, "El peso de uno mismo". En la misma se puede observar a un hombre que lleva en brazos a otro, como si lo estuviera salvando. No es así. Si se observa detenidamente, ambos hombres son la misma persona. No es casualidad que se encuentre emplazada frente al Ministerio de Justicia.. "El peso de uno mismo", habla de la responsabilidad ciudadana y las consiguientes obligaciones que tiene todo ciudadano, empezando por hacerse cargo de sus propias acciones. Muy bella y es para reflexionar.
