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.
