Staute of Saint Denis. Place Susan Buisson, Montmartre, Paris. Statue of decapitated, martyr Saint Denis, carrying his head. Legend has it that after being decapitated by the Romans at the top of the hill, St. Denis went on to pick up his head, wash it off and carry it 8 kilometers (about 4 miles) to the north to what is now the town of St. Denis before he finally dropped.
