From May 1 to October 18, 2021, the National Museum of Natural History hosted five monumental works by animal sculptor Michel BASSOMPIERRE in the Jardin des Plantes.
Bears and gorillas on display are the emblematic giants of endangered species. Their habitats, forests and sea ice, are being damaged by the pressure of climate change and humans. With the extinction of these fragile colossi, the thousands of plant and animal species in their ecosystems are also in danger.
The exhibition aims to raise awareness of the beauty, diversity and fragility of the living world, under the scientific guidance of primatologist Sabrina KRIEF, professor at the Museum.
Exhibition organized in partnership with Galeries BARTOUX.
