A seated statue entitled "Bigfoot, the walking for the conscience" was installed next to the Grand Stade Lille Metropole Friday, May 24, 2013 morning.
This work, signed Idan Zareski, will be visible for six months.
Bigfoot, the sculpture of Idan Zareski, is a great traveler. Its mission is to be presented worldwide.
Already exhibited in Latin America where he was born, as well as North America, it is now in Europe and will soon route to Asia before ending his journey in Antarctica.
With its african roots crossbred of a Latin American genealogy, Bigfoot is not a denunciation of racism as it might seem at first, but a "peaceful appeal to hope, a call for the unification of the human race . His huge feet are the roots of our past, as an anchor that ties us to this land. His relaxed attitude and appearance of contemplation that comes from Bigfoot is actually a testimony : no matter our race, our color, our membership, or our origins, we are all rooted in this unique home. This peaceful African with big feet is a passive spectator, observer of the uselessness of human conflict recurring."
Born in 1968 in Haifa, Israel, Idan Zareski is of French nationality. This autodidact now lives in Costa Rica.
His works have already been exhibited in his native Colombia, Italy, France and the United States.

The shot was taken in june 2013, at midday. Panorama made in HDR version (enfuse).

This is an overview of France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.

French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.

The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.

The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.

The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.

One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.

During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.

France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.
