Église Saint-Jean-de-Montmartre


Angels abound in this relatively new church (1904) of reinforced concrete.


There are many treasures to be found inside and out.



Bon dimanche

Such a pretty statue brushed with golden light from the windows -imagine 1904 being considered new!

I like the idea of angels.. I often wonder who (and how) thought about them at the beginning..
Have a nice sunday!

Beautiful!

Beautiful Genie, with the glow coming off the glass windows, perfect. It's funny to think that in Europe 1904 is considered 'new'. That would translate almost into 'ancient' here in Australia haha!

The font has an interesting design with the water being poured from another receptacle.
