As well as the caryatids which decorate facades, those to be found inside must  not be neglected.

Charles garnier used them  to support the stage boxes of the Opéra and the fireplaces in its grand foyer; they can also be found at the Opera Comique (salle Favart), the Paris town hall, the Guimet museum and many other locations.
