Inside the sculpture are some lines from Jean de Brunhoff's Babar the King, where he says "Ce paysage est si beau, que chaque jour, en me réveillant j'aimerais le voir. C'est ici qu'il faudra construire notre chambre," or something like, "This countryside is so beautiful, that each day, when I wake up, I would like to see it. This is where we must build our room." (Excuse my less than ideal translation!) Céleste, is, of course, Babar's Queen.
