A number of these caryatids are allegorical figures: those framing the entrance of the Conservatoire des Arts et Métiers  represent Art and Science; those at Passage Bourg l'Abbé 3 rue Palestro symbolize Trade and Industry; those at 44 rue de Paradis Work and Commerce; those around the clock at the head office of Crédit Lyonnais 19 boulevard des italiens number twelve like the hours on a clock face.
