This drawing is based on the sculpture 'The Four Parts of the World Holding the Celestial Sphere' in the Musee d'Orsay, Paris.
A monumental fountain featuring this sculpture located in the Jardin Marco Polo, south of the Jardin du Luxembourg in the 6th arrondissement of Paris, with sculpture by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux. It is also known as the Fontaine des Quatre-Parties-du-Monde, for the four parts of the world embodied by its female figures.
I have drawn this subject may times from every angle as I find it very beautiful and inspiring.
