The 'Leviathon' in Paris

Indian-born London-based artist Anish Kapoor has unveiled a sculpture of epic proportions in Paris.

The Turner Prize winner's 'Leviathon' piece forms the central work for Monumenta 2011 exhibition in the dramatic nave of the Grand Palais.

Each year Monumenta invites an internationally-renowned artist to create a new artwork especially for this space.
