This gate opens at the entrance to the Cours la Reine.

It is made up of four metal masts, 60 metres high, decorated with four large symbolic medallions: the Arts represented by Apollo riding a prancing Pegasus; techniques represented by a forge; the French Rooster and the Parisian Nave.

At the foot of the masts, four "taus", equipped with projectors, extend the monumental effect.
