Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
A symbol of patriotic France, here is the Arc de Triomphe, rising from the center of the Place Charles de Gaulle. Simply made, I had created this more as a scenic backdrop for my Parisian Sims, however it is fully furnished. At its base lies the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, with its Flame of Remembrance, and within is the small attic museum displaying the background and architectural history of the arch. There is also an observation deck at its apex.

She has a few lots posted on this site and in this section, like the Paris Opera House and Notre Dame. I love the realism involved in her work and I'm just hoping that she'll post some more soon (hint hint).
