Above Channel Gardens Entrance of La Maison Francaise
Pure Art Deco, this panel features an allegorical gilded female figure sowing seeds in the form of a stylized fleur-de-lis, the symbolic flower of France. Muscular and robust, she wears the helmet of authority and the garb of a peasant woman, the dress underscoring her connection with the ordinary people. She indomitably strides across a multicolored, gilded field while effortlessly carrying a heavy sack.
