"Place de la République, Paris. The Place de la République: . . . contains a monument which includes a statue of the personification of France, Marianne . . .  Marianne is surrounded with three statues personifying liberty, equality, and fraternity, the values of the French Republic. These statues also evoke the three medieval theological virtues. Also at the base is a lion guarding a depiction of a ballot box."
