The Unidentified Magical Statue was a bronze statue depicting a woman sitting on a pedestal, located in Paris. It served as entrance to Montmartre, the wizarding part of Paris.[1]

Description

To non-magical individuals, the statue would appear as any ordinary statue, but when a magical individual was near, the statue would become animated, providing entrance to Paris' counterpart of Diagon Alley. The statue came to life when approached by wizards and witches — the statue would move its leg and dress away from the pedestal it was set on, opening the passage.[1]

History

In 1927, Porpentina Goldstein, Newton Scamander and Jacob Kowalski used the statue to gain entrance to Montmartre, the wizarding part of Paris for their missions.[2]
