La Fontaine aux Oiseaux

One of my favourite Monte Carlo sculptures: the Bird Fountain is by the well-known illustrator, painter and sculptor, Jean-Michel Folon and stands in the Place du Casino, facing the casino itself. Born in Belgium in 1934, Folon died in the Principality in 2005. Take a look at this link to read more about this artist and see some of his fascinating work. Readers of the New Yorker will know of his almost surreal art.

I know this photo is about the Bird Fountain, but I'm still stuck on the casino in front of it and I don't even gamble! :-D

Is that a balcony on the top of the casino? Can you go up there?
