Big, Bold and Beautiful - Art on a Roundabout

It is usually my fellow blogger Michel Augsburger of  Our House in Provence who chronicles roundabouts but I suppose I might be forgiven if I borrow the idea this one time. We recently went on a short trip to the north western part of France where I saw this roundabout which I absolutely adored. Whoever the creator was he or she had the guts to to go Big, Bold and Beautiful - qualities you do not find very often on roundabout decorations. A true work of art to be found on a roundabout between Rochefort and Marennes.
