Saint-Denis , 1er évêque de Paris , décapité aurait selon la légende ramassé sa tête et marché jusqu'à sa tombe de Montmartre à St Denis .

Saint-Denis , a Christian martyre was a bishop of Paris ( Third century). After his head was chopped off, Denis is said to have picked it up and walked.

Really like the photo, and thanks for the explanation. Very nice composition, and the blurred tree in the background helps fill a blank space and provides some context for the statue. Nice photograph.
