This sculpture of a family appears outside Les Halles on the east side entrance to the underground shopping mall, the Métro, and the RER. In addition to this group is another singular man running and a dog...

Again, who are these people?

Corner of Pierre Lescot and Rambuteau
Les Halles


Answer:
o2 of Paris-ci, Paris-là solved the mystery for me in naming the artist Elisabeth Buffoli born in Nancy and living in Paris. The sculpture is named Les Touristes and there is no plaque with the artist's name near the site. They do look like tourists in less than a flattering portrayal, gawking at the unfamiliar.
