11 Jardin Exotique Garden Rose and Anaïs Statues in Éze, France

Encircled by the ruins of a 12th century castle are the enchanting statues of Rose (left) and Anaïs. They are two of the fourteen Goddess Earth Statues. They are poised similar to actresses on the red carpet while attending the nearby Cannes Film Festival. Next to each sculpture is a three-line poem. The one for Anaïs ends with, “A woman, I am.” They are sculpted from earthen clay which the artist Jean-Philippe Richard calls “dust of stars.”
