In 1935, French sculptor Constant Roux created a bust, Achilles as a Child, proving that the many sources which list his death as occurring in 1929 are wrong. Roux studied wood carving at the School of Fine Arts in Marseille, and later continued in Paris. After World War I he was commissioned to work on various war memorials. In 1922 he created a bust of the French runner [Jean Bouin], which was originally erected in the Parc Borély in Marseilles, before it was moved to the forecourt of the velodrome in the 1930s. During World War II, the statue was saved from being sent to the smelter by the German occupying troops for the recovery of bronze. Later, it was restored and reiterated.. Roux mainly produced busts, portraits, reliefs and friezes.
