The exact number of sculptures is difficult to find out. The book Images de Barentin of 2006 lists 312 sculptures, 110 of which are in public space (at present, there are at least 328 sculptures). The 110 sculptures 'on the street' include a few buildings and architectural features, among them the famous train viaduct. Included on our website are 93 of these 110. But, we included six sculptures not in public space (on school yards), listed in the book as not in public space, and two sculptures which are not in the book. That means that there are 101 sculptures in Barentin on our website.

Each sculpture has a blue tile with the name, the sculptor and the reference number. Between 2001 and 2014 all sculptures have been restored, reports about the restaurations are in the Ensemble Barentin, Bulletin municipal officiel (on-line).
