Sculptures at the Musee d'Orsay

This is François Pompon's "Polar Bear", with a view of the grand clock from the train station in the back. This is the coolest bear (no pun intended).... read more here..

Harder to photograph, but also amazing is this "Seated Lion" by Antoine-Louis Barye

Down one hallway that's inside the wall with the Clock at the d'Orsay is this "must see" step-by-step examination of the different ways scupltures are created....

and it starts with this little Barye "sketch" of a lion...
