The Famous French Collection

His artistic vision having been shaped by poverty, he used the most economical materials for his sculptures.

"A few compositions and compressions later", the French film industry asked him to design its annual award, the César, a gold statuette in the shape of a compression, quite distinct from its older American cousin, the Oscar.


Did you know?

César had a weakness for thumbs. Why? The thumb is the finger with the best proportions. Enlarged to monumental dimensions, the other fingers of the hand don't have the same effect, not to mention the fact that it has only two phalanges, easier to reproduce. And on top of it all, it's a symbol of strength and power.
