The works of Baptiste Debombourg tend to divulge the unspoken, reveal stories from silence, and throw light on shadows. Behinds his sculptures and their materials, stories are either sheltered or exposed. As a "repairing" artist, he fixes cracked walls and broken furniture and objects without hiding scars.
This hybrid artwork is situated at the foot of the statue representing King Francis I, the founder of Le Havre. The basin is decorated with patterns from the king's bedroom in Château de Blois.
