Mime legend Marcel Marceau was buried on Wednesday at the famous Pere Lachaise cemetery in Paris in a simple ceremony that was attended by family members only.
The cemetery, located on the east side of the French capital, is where a host of other famous performers and artists are buried, including the composer Frederic Chopin, writer Oscar Wilde, painter Eugene Delacroix and rock star Jim Morrison.
Marceau died on Saturday at the age of 84.
Wearing white face paint, soft shoes and a battered hat topped with a red flower, Marceau was arguably the most recognised mime artist in the world.
Through his famed character Bip, he played the entire range of human emotions onstage for more than 50 years, never uttering a word.
Offstage, he was famously chatty. "Never get a mime talking. He won't stop," he once said.
A French Jew, Marceau escaped deportation to a Nazi death camp during World War II, unlike his father who died in Auschwitz.
Marceau also worked with the French Resistance before taking up the art of mime, which brought him fame around the world.
