Found on the wall of building 3 dominating the Garden of Peace (called Japanese Garden).

This painted mosaic measuring 2.46 x 9.60 m overlooks the Japanese Garden. Its "living surface" is achieved by its carefully chosen assortment of enameled pieces of ceramics and stones.

Bazaine has also decorated the Cluny La Sorbonne metro station with several mosaics.
