A Little Paris in Hayes Valley

More references and than you shake a stick at. A little Christo here, some Napoleon, a trace of Burning Man: Seyed Alavi's Arc de Triomphe on the Boulevard Champs-Octavielysées de Hayes Valley. When in Paris we mere tourists see a famous traffic circle, the Arc de Triomphe is actually France's premier military monument and the tomb of it's Unknown Soldiers. Color us puzzled, although Alavi's version is trés jolie in the morning light.
