Paul et Virginie Statue at Blue Penny Meseum. Saw a copy on sale at 2000EUR in a magazine. Dodo at the History Meseum The sculptures at Jardin La Compagnie (not sure) One at Grand Bassin

Not that I know of but 2 things come to mind which may or may not be regarded as sculptures:

  • The stuffed dodo in the Natural History Museum
  • The Shiv statue in Grand Bassin

Just to back up why I chose those, here's the dictionary definition of sculpture:

The art of making two- or three-dimensional representative or abstract forms, esp. by carving stone or wood or by casting metal or plaster.

Hmm...not really what I expected. Was looking for sculptures in the category of spoonbridge.

In that case, the Harbour Bridge (Dream Bridge) which is going to be built in Port-Louis (Les Salines) could become an important landmark here.

Besides that, nothing comes to mind.
