  • The Weight of Oneself is a very nice and meaningful sculpture emerging from the river right in front of the Appeals Court of Lyon. This is one of those things you "accidentally" find while wandering around the city and then you find yourself contemplating it for a few minutes. I recommend crossing the pedestrian bridge that's right beside the sculpture, it has amazing views of the court, the sculpture and the river.
  • One of the most beautiful and conceptually deep sculptures that populate the edge of the Saona River is undoubtedly "The weight of oneself." In the same one can observe a man who carries in arms to another, as if he were saving him. It's Not like that. If you look closely, both men are the same person. It is No coincidence that it is situated in front of the Ministry of Justice. "The Weight of oneself", speaks of the civic responsibility and the consequent obligations that every citizen has, starting from taking charge of his own actions. Very beautiful and it is to reflect.
