Gregos's Face in the Wall, 1st arrondissement, Paris

Just visible between the arches here on rue de la Ferronnerie is a plaque that announces that Henri IV was killed here in 1610 by Ravaillac. Another plaque on the ground marks the spot.
This is also visible in the above photo. Silly little things are always of far more interest to me than any kings, queens and other such nonsense. I prefer nonsense that doesn't pretend to be anything other than nonsense. Just under the chin here is the signature 'Gregos', and there's a link to the artist's web site below:
