Statues in churches, II

Here's another polychrome statue that I photographed in the Eglise St-Sulpice in Palluau-sur-Indre.

We are having a second day in a row of sunny weather in Saint-Aignan. Ouahou ! as we say here. But tomorrow and Friday are supposed to be rainy.

Chrissoup (who is actually Chris or Chrissou P.) arrives tomorrow for a long-weekend visit. I have a couple of ideas for day trips with her if the weather cooperates.

    In Québec, so many statues are now gone from our churches. It happened with Pope John XX111. I'm sorry in many ways. They were not necessarily great artworks but they gave a distinctive look to each church. Couleur locale...A bit like what you are showing here.
