Passe-Muraille

Sculpture in Montmartre & Northern Paris

Just north of Montmartre's famous windmills, on place Marcel Aymé, watch a man pop out of a stone wall. Created by artist Jean Marais in 1989, the Passe-Muraille sculpture portrays Dutilleul, the hero of Marcel Aymé's short story Le Passe-Muraille (The Walker through Walls). Aymé lived in the adjacent building from 1902 until 1967.
