User value : apart from the sculptural side of these little scenes, they can potentially be used as a desktop object (clipboard, mail carrier, rests pencil)

Aesthetic value : the scene is the space of representation of significant elements which tell a story.

Symbolic value : The bust of Napoleon on his pedestal is a reflection on the presence of statues in the urban space : “the dream stones ” Mr. Agulhon as representation and embodiment of the national imagination. The figure of the butterfly symbolises the fragility and the rebirth.

The relationship between the elements of the play among themselves a hymn to freedom.
