“Medusa” and the Legion of Honor

One of the videos featured in the “Medusa” exhibition echoes the current inauguration ceremony of France’s new President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron. We see Vincent Auriol, Nicolas Sarkozy and François Mitterrand all receive the large gold chain and medallion of the Grand Master of the Order of the Legion of Honor. Created by Napoleon to reward soldiers and civilians serving the nation, it is composed of the Legion of Honor star and sixteen links recalling the sixteen major activities of the nation.
