Paris-zouave-pont-de-l-almaWhat ? A sculpture of a soldier of the colonian troops who is the meter of how high the Seine is.

Why ? Access to the footpaths by the river embankments usually is closed when the Seine’s level reaches the feet of the Zouave, and when the water hits the statue’s thighs, the river becomes unnavigable.
