The late sculptor Louis Derbré is well known in these parts. Many of his larger works are still on open display around the town where he worked from his large atelier.
This one dominates the bypass running beside the largest park exhibiting his works.
Sadly, since his death, large areas of the park and some of the exhibits
are beginning to suffer the ravages of time and neglect.

It's a great place for a gentle walk. But a shame to see it slowly disintegrating.

Yes. Louis Derbré was a local character whose work could be "unusual" let's say. I met him at his workshop/showroom just before he died in 2011.  There are examples of his work dotted about the town of Ernée.

I do love contemporary art I must say.

There's even a small amphitheatre where outdoor concerts used to be held, but you can see how it has fallen into disuse and neglect now

A few more examples of the works that one can stroll by.
There was a kestrel perched on the head of the first one. It was unperturbed by my approach, but I didn't fly too near.

Someone should restore that and put it to good use - such a waste

Indeed. Judging from the stuff lying about I suspect that it's a nocturnal hangout for substance abusers, and other clandestine activities. It's a great shame.
