Statue of King Henry IV of France Now Includes a Lightsaber

King Henry IV (1553-1610) of France was noteworthy for ending the religious wars of Reformation era France through both good generalship and effective diplomacy, as well as opening French commerce in India. An equestrian statue of him graces the Pont Neuf in Paris. In a temporary art installation, Jean-Charles de Castelbajac added neon lights and a lightsaber.
