Paris is known as a very popular romantic destination. But that is not all, France is the home for many arts and crafts, including some of the best food; especially cheese and wine.
So, if you ever visit Paris, there is one place you should make a not to visit; The Louvre Museum. This museum is a very special place in Paris because it is the home to a very big collection of historical pieces of art, crafts, antique collections and so on. But this article is about something special that happened outside. The Louvre Pyramid at the Museum is also a very special landmark of the Museum as well as Paris. It recently had its 30th year anniversary and a talented artist; Jean Rene created a very artistic optical-illusion incorporating the pyramid that looked unbelievably beautiful when it was completed.

This was a combined effort of Jean Rene and 400 volunteers. They used around 2000 paper-sticker sheets to set up the artwork over an area of 183,000 square feet. Once it was done, he invited people over to check it out via social media and the Museum got flooded with people to visit this amazing sight.
But it tears as people walk over. The more people walked over the more it got erased. This was part of the art as well. Jean Rene believed that an illusion should disappear faster than it appeared and that process was nothing but people simply passing over. He considered this art to be ephemeral and he dedicated this project to Agnès Varda. She was a very impressive director who was also an artist & photographer who worked with Jean Rene. They were close and sadly, she passed away in 2019 at 90 years old.
