La dame de la mosaïque



I will confess that I know nothing of this lovely mosaic on the premier étage of a building, near Shakespeare and Company. I welcome further information from my keen readers!

UPDATE:  Thanks to a nice reader, the mystery of the lady is solved. This is Polly Maggoo, a rather famous bar in the 5eme!

I don't know anything about the mosaic, but it's so particularly striking. I hope I see it next year.

In spite of its simplicity, it is amazing.

Très joli. Elle a même son petit projecteur.

Interesting... almost missed the fine white outline of her hair, or possible a scarf

Thanks for sharing.

It is exactly like in the movie poster: Who Are You, Polly Maggoo?!

Beautiful mosaic. I love all the colors but most of all, I love all the different shades of blue. :)

Stunning and so striking in the deepest blues :-)

Nice mosaic! I think it has something to do with a movie from the 1960's.

I was going to try to get some info about this after my last Paris trip but I totally forgot.

Stop by Weekend Reflections because I'm reflecting on Paris. I can't wait to go back. :)

The mosaic is special, Virginia. It is very creative.

With some good facial lotion, maybe all the cracks and lines would disappear, non?

How beautiful, and what vivid color! And right next to a splendid, unique French window. I love the French windows. Just as chic as the fashions!
