Cocteau's Lizard


In a few weeks Menton Daily Photo will be featuring Menton's new Jean Cocteau Museum, but today, because it's Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community, here's a glimpse of part of the courtyard which features Cocteau's famous lizard motif. And as you can see, it's taken on a life of its own as children love following the pattern created in the pebbles.

Cobbles created with pebbles like this are common in Menton - you find them, for instance, outside the Basilica.

Dans quelques semaines, Menton Daily Photo présentera le nouveau Musée Jean Cocteau de Menton, mais aujourd'hui, parce que c'est le jour Thème dans la communauté City Daily Photo, voici un aperçu d'une partie de la cour qui représente le célèbre motif du lézard du Cocteau. Et comme vous pouvez le voir, depuis qu'il a été inauguré en Novembre, il a sa vie propre comme les enfants qui suivent leur chemin balisé par des cailloux.

Des pavages créés avec des cailloux comme celui-ci sont communs à Menton - comme celui devant la basilique.

  1. My little Alannah would be delighted to find Cocteau's Lizard. She already walks along anything she can find, as a challenge.

    Thank you for the bouquet, Jilly. It really is a pleasure.

  5. The stones in patterns in Europe are a treat. It is nice to see that the legacy continues even in recently constructed installations
