Around town in Versailles
Above is one of the four entrances to the underground parking garage beneath the famous Place du Marché in Versailles; and this is how they're fitted out. The portrayal of a young Louis XIV (1638-1715), mounted on the agile baroque horse of choice, a Lusitano, was evidently printed on adhesive covering film and then applied to a panel on the small building.  A majestic bleu de France sky frames this reminder that Versailles is commemorating the 300th anniversary of Louis XIV's death.
