The Action Chained is a work by French sculptor Aristide Maillol. Created in 1905 , he moved to Puget Theniers in France . A replica can be seen in Paris. The work is a sculpture in bronze . It represents a female nude standing, whose hands are tied behind her back.
The original bronze is exposed to Puget-Théniers in the Alpes-Maritimes , in the Place du Pre de Foire. It is placed on a stone pedestal, as high as the statue itself, which serves as a tribute to Auguste Blanqui.
A replica, also in bronze, installed since 1964 in the garden of the Carrousel in the 1st arrondissement of Paris; it is part of a set of statues of Maillol exhibited outdoors.
The statue was commissioned from Aristide Maillol by the Puget-Théniers section of the League for Human Rights in honor of Auguste Blanqui ,a native of the town. Maillol created the statue between 1905 and 1908 where it was erected in 1909 in front of the church . This location caused a scandal and the statue was replaced in 1922 by a war memorial and relegated to the pre-fair . DuringWorld War II , to avoid being melted bronze, the statue was dismantled and hidden again in the slaughterhouses of the village. Discovered in 1942, it is stored in Nice where she escapes but his fate. She returned to Puget Theniers after the liberation of the region in September 1944 , and erected at its current location.
Parisian replica installed in 1964 in the garden of the Carrousel.
