The statue of the Capitoline Wolf (She-wolf) suckling Romulus and Remus is a symbol of the city of Rome and probably one of the most recognisable sculptures in the Western world. There are been many reproductions of this famous monument placed in various cities to demonstrate connections to ancient Rome. This particular one is found at the Square Paul-Painlevé near Musée de Cluny in Paris, a gift from the city of Rome in 1962. You can conveniently view the Capitoline along with a handful of other monuments at Square Paul-Painlevé before or after spending time at Musée de Cluny.

I entered small Place Paul Painleve and admired a bronze copy here of the famous Capitoline Wolf. The original is in Rome’s Capitoline Museums. This copy — there are many worldwide — stands on a pedestal just inside the square’s Western entrance in greenery by the walkway. The piece captures the legend of Rome’s founding. Slightly larger than life-size, the statue depicts a wolf standing with her head turned toward the onlooker. She has a wary expression. Unconcerned, twins Romulus and Remus suckle below, getting necessary sustenance from this animal, which rescued them, to survive. According to the myth, Romulus went on to found Rome. The wolf for the original statue was created between the 11th and 12th centuries with the twins added in the late 15th century. This copy came to Paris in 1962 as a gift from Rome. I think its placement in this lovely square outside the Cluny Museum is quite appropriate, because of the museum’s focus on the Medieval period.
