Prince Rainier III

This sculpture stands outside the chapiteau (the circus tent) in Fontvieille. It was sculpted by Marcus Marin in 2006 and needs to be seen from a distance to properly see the face of the late Prince Rainier of Monaco.

OK, I partially closed my eyes and I could see the resemblance. Very interesting. Who would have thought to do the Prince in this way. Oh well!

That works really well, Jilly.
It certainly bears a good resemblance. Very clever work of art.

You are right about the similarity!
It's true you can see a little of him from afar.

That's a very cool technique! The thumbnail on the CDPB portal shows what you mean. I like it!

Truly bizarre - if you unfocus your eyes, you really can see the portrait - amazing!!

It renders very well from the portal! It's pretty neat!

If I squint my eyes and sit back in my chair, I see his face perfectly! Pretty neat-thanks.
