Vanity

La vanité mise à nue par ses thuriféraires by Daniel Hourdé, Place Saint-Germain des Prés, Paris
“La vanité mise à nue par ses thuriféraires” by Daniel Hourdé, 2009
Place Saint-Germain des Prés, 6e arrondissement
Paris, July 2011

La vanité mise à nu par ses thuriféraires is another thought-provoking sculpture by Daniel Hourdé, installed just across the road from Désillusion totale, that perfectly represents the stripping of vanity to reveal the fundamentals, the depth beneath this layer of superficial mask. We are vulnerable under it all; usually only the most devoted see this side of us, with the truest standing by us unconditionally. Trust of this kind is hard to come by and if you have earned it, never take it for granted.”
