Monument aux Morts

Monument

in Grand Bassam

Erected in 1914 by the French, commemorating the victims of yellow fever. It is the work of Alfred Lenoir, a sculptor who dedicated much of his oeuvre to France's war memorials. In this, the poised figure of a woman carries an armful of flowers and is ready to throw a fragile single flower onto the dead body stretched on the ground before her feet.
