Boy with tin drum at the Louvre

The Louvre in the evening, the little boy sits precariously under a window.
When looking for reflections of the Louvre in the windows of the Louvre, I realized a little figure sitting precariously high under the windows of the world’s most famous museum.
Only when looking at him through my tele lens, I realized that this was art - not suicidal behaviour.
I wonder how many times a day the police are called to help?
Presumably it’s just a reference to Gnter Grass’ Oskar Matzerath from the “tin drum”.
