4 runners in Marly (B&W)

In Marly Le Roi, West of Paris one can find the park of the former weekend residence of Louis XIV. There is unfortunately nothing left from the chateau itself. In that park are 4 weird statues named “the four runners of Marly”, which were designed by famous 18th century sculptors amongst whom the Coustou brothers. Those statues are also shown in the Louvre.
