    Arago medallion near the Louvre pyramid. In his "Hommage à Arago," commissioned as a memorial to François Arago (1786-1853), Jan Dibbets set over a hundred of these bronze medallions into the ground along the Paris Meridian from the southern to the northern boundaries of the City. Each of them is 12 cm in diameter, with Arago's name and showing north and south.
