Quel travail admirable! C'est magnifique. Quel dommage que, maintenant, tout coûte trop cher et que l'on soit obligé d'utiliser des matériaux préfabriqués, tous sortis du même moule!...
Bon dimanche, Genie!

Prayers for Japan, indeed.

I love that all churches are so ornate and detailed. I completely agree; our prayers and thoughts are with those in Japan. What tragedy.

biebkriebels said...

Those are great details of the carving. Yes my thoughts are with Japan too, the horror they are in.

Rob and Mandy said...

I lost my heart in there once as well...

Birdman said...

Fine detail here. Thanks for the second shot to show the location.

Joining you in praying for the people of Japan. Thank you for sharing such beauty with us. Love St. Eustache!

Virginia said...

IT's all in the details. Well done.

It is hard to imagine the devastation and how it will be dealt with. Prayers are needed.

A beautiful église. St. Eustache is one of my favorites in Paris!

I love it when you show us the details, Genie. Your "eye" is amazing. And the people of Japan are in my prayers as well—que Dieu les bénisse.

JM said...

Beautiful details indeed.

Amazing woodwork!!! When I see this type of work, I imagine an old craftsman with little round spectacles carving away...

The people of Japan are in dire need of help from all of us, from all nations...

That's really nice, but the staircase in Saint-Etienne-du-Mont in the 5e, is spectacular. http://tiny.cc/ms0q8

C'était un travail merveilleux que faisaient nos ancêtres... J'ai la chance de pouvoir admirer le travail que fait un de mes amis qui travaille pour les monuments historiques. Ce qui permet de pouvoir conserver le plus longtemps possible nos trésors.
Gros bisous et une pensée particulièrement à l'ensemble de cette population qui subit l'horreur de cette catastrophe.

Beautiful details and prayers indeed. x

Amazing wood work!

Owen said...

So many beautiful details in Paris when one starts looking closely. I guess there are not a lot of wood workers left today who would have the patience to carve such a handrail again...

Jack said...

I love the details, too, Genie. It was fun enlarging the first photo and stufying the carving.

My thoughts are with yours about the people of Japan.

Kate said...

I'm glad you posted both photos, the top for its exquisite detail and the small one so that we could see the lovely curve. I think we'll need to pray for a very long time for that suffering nation. It is my hope that many, many nations will offer support to Japan on a continuing basis.

Beautiful, beautiful image! I love the warmth is projects.

Japan, and it's people, are in my prayers.

Thank you for showing us beauty, then reminding us there are those who need our thoughts and prayers.
