This is fantastic artwork and a wonderful point you hit on, the fact that the theme of revolution goes beyond the students' revolt. The Eiffel Tower hadn't been built by their time, but as a symbol of France it works perfectly here.
Every revolution, being a normal accomplishment, contains in itself its own legitimacy, which false revolutionists sometimes dishonor, but which persists even when sullied, which survives even when stained with blood. Revolutions spring, not from an accident, but from necessity. A revolution is a return from the factitious to the real. It is, because it must be. ~ Victor Hugo, Les MisÚrables
