Kenapa simbol negara perancis adalah seorang wanita? Bukan pria macho sekelas rambo? Namanya: Marianne. Yang ditetapkan tanggal lahirnya 25 September 1792, dan ia pun tidak pernah nyata sebagai manusia
Marianne, a national emblem of France, is a personification of Liberty and Reason. She is present in many places in France and holds a place of honour in town halls and law courts. She symbolises the "Triumph of the Republic", a bronze sculpture overlooking the Place de la Nation in Paris. Her profile stands out on the official seal of the country, is engraved on French euro coins and appears on French postage stamps; it also was featured on the former French franc coins and banknotes. Marianne is considered one of the most prominent symbols of the French Republic.
The origins of Marianne, depicted by artist Honoré Daumier as a mother nursing two children, or by sculptor François Rude as an angry warrior voicing the Marseillaise on the Arc de Triomphe,
are uncertain. In any case, she has become a symbol in France:
considered as a personification of the Republic, she was often used on
pro-Republican iconography — and heavily caricatured and reviled by
* oil painting created in 1833 by Eugène Delacroix (1798 – 1863)
