Notre-Dame de Paris
The terrible night of April 15, 2019
Notre-Dame de Paris
I never thought I would ever see Notre-Dame on fire, because for me, like many French, she is immortal, built since 1163 until the end of XIVth century. It represents beauty, spirituality, time, hope. Notre-Dame is our soul.

When I saw the huge smoke from the rue Sainte-Geneviève, I thought it was screwed up. « The forest » (the 1300 trees forming the frame) was ravaged by fire in his heart.
On the Quai de la Seine, we were gathered in front of the drama, stunned, desperate for so much powerlessness, silent most of the time, and suddenly shouting as the flames grew, that immense yellow clouds rose from the melting lead, watching the actions of firemen who seemed vain facing the violence of the fire. Late, firemen managed to get into the gallery and started watering from all sides.

A vision of apocalypse and punishment, it also reminded us of the great catastrophes, the 11th of September and the horror of the first attacks. What emotion, we were crying !

At 10:45 pm, we had the impression that the fire was under control, that the north tower would be saved thanks to the valiant firemen! We left, greeting each other. There were so many people everywhere in the neighborhood, rue Saint Julien Le Pauvre, people sang hymns, it was reassuring this communion, I sang too.

What infinite sadness, what immense sorrow
in putting online these pictures,
yet terribly beautiful,
for my longtime friend, Bérangère …

A Brush with Genius and an Encounter with Angels
Val de Grâce
We'll soon have the chance to rediscover the denizens of the Val de Grâce dome in all their (almost) glory !

Anne d'Autriche commissioned the Val de Grâce church in the XVIIth century to express her thanks for the birth of her son, the future Louis XIV.
The original statues of angels and genius decorating the church's dome, badly damaged by time and pollution, have been removed and will be exhibited in the crypt and the Nuns's Choir.
Exact copies of these statues, created with the aid of a 3D printer and hand-carved to scale (118 inches) in 3-ton blocks of stone, are due to be installed at the site in April 2019. We'll keep you posted on the progress …
This represents the largest restoration project of parisian statues directed by OPPIC (Opérateur du Patrimoine et des Projets Immobiliers de la Culture), the Bureau MANCIULESCU ACMH & Associés, the Entreprise LEFEVRE, SOCRA, the Groupement LOUIS GENESTE, the Atelier TOLLIS, the Atelier JEAN-LOUP BOUVIER, the Groupement SNBR.
