Le Passe-Muraille (The passer-through-walls) is a French short story published by Marcel Aymé in 1943. It ends with the lead character getting stuck in a wall. This mural is a representation of that. The sculpture is based on the character and was made by Jean...More

It's a nice statue but nothing historical there. You should go to the mill "Moulin de la galette" more far, witness of "Belle Epoque"

A man coming out of a wall, it is indeed a curious art piece and the object of many photographers. In the middle of one of Paris' most charming neighborhoods, perfect for a walking tour.

Fun street art in a wonderful neighborhood. Come and take a photo, but do a long walk through this area hopefully with some guide to the interesting buildings along the way. History and architecture.

This sculpture is a tribute to a short story by Marcel Ayme, after whom the plaza is named. In fact his face is on the larger-than-life sculpture, by his friend Jean Marais. A civil servant in Montmartre has the incredible ability to traverse walls due...More

I guess it would be fun for kids to see but it's nothing more than another statue in a wall. I would not do the detour just for that again.

steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy
