Cohons ...

The snail of Cohons is a part of about fifteen
stone kiosks .
"Snail"-like constructions are not
uncommon
in the southern part of Upper Marne.
Stemming from the tradition of "labyrinths-mounds"
more
former, "Snails" are in the form of truncated
cone and
support (bear) in their suburb of
the successive terraces or
more generally,
a road in spiral going of the base to the
summit.

Architects are well aware of what the spiral
represents:
"everlasting movement".
In a more mystical way, it is the impetus
towards infinity, the quest to perfection
