Inaugurated on 12 March 2006, the statue of Pescalune is the work of sculptor Ben K.
It evokes the famous legend of Pescalune. In Lunel, in the 15th century, the fishermen from this small hamlet developed a fishing technique to catch lots of eels. By baiting the bottom of baskets held by ropes, the fishermen caught the voracious eels on moonless nights. This practice of night fishing, on dark nights, quickly became a legend - the fishermen seemed in effect to have fished the moon!
