The Giant Head Sculpture in Jardin Marechal Juin in Nice, France

I’d seen a couple of photos of the enormous head sculpture in Nice on Pinterest prior to my visit to the city. I intended to seek out the sculpture to take some photos. But I chanced upon it when I got slightly lost walking from our hotel to the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMAC).

The head sculpture is located in Jardin Marechal Juin, which lies between the Acropoplis conference centre and MAMAC.  It’s official title is ‘La Tete au Carre de Sosno’ which translates to ‘Thinking Inside the Box’. It was created by the French artist and sculptor Sacha Sosno. The sculpture is home to a library with three floors. I’m not sure if it’s ever open to the public, I couldn’t find any information about this.

There are a few other sculptures in Nice’s Jardin Marechal Juin. I liked the rock man, held in place by wire wrapped around his body.

The man below looked pensive as he stared up into the sky.

I liked the simplicity of the predominately white sculpture in contrast to the intricate balconies and green shutters of the pink building behind it.
