Symbols of Love in Paris

Paris in itself is a symbol of love, you can see it in the details.

You might be familiar with lovelocks, but did you know that the city of Paris have to remove tons of Locks each year due to the weight strain they put on the bridges?

A lesser known symbol of love is this fountain by Georges Jeanclos. It symbolizes couples supporting each other whilst making love (on the edges of the statue/fountain) and on the very top you find their children striving upwards towards a better world.
