Chapelle Saint-Vincent-de-Paul III

2012 Oct 8 Monday_52DSC_9163

Chapelle Saint-Vincent-de-Paul

In one of the ornate chapels of this church, 
so unassuming by its exterior, 
is seen this serene statue adorned with a crown of gold.  

Under the left foot is a serpent which has been crushed.  
The backdrop has been styled to appear as a fine silk fabric.  
The details of this alcove are memorable.

bon dimanche

Memorable indeed and so is your capture for the day, Genie! Hope you're enjoying a beautiful weekend!

A beautiful capture, dear Genie!
Thank you so much for stopping by chez moi... :)
And your father played the trombone? What a beautiful DP is a trombonist by profession (unfortunately this is not how he makes a living)....
But what memories you must have...
A blessed Sunday to you, dear friend!

Our current flat in Paris is very near this church, so I made sure to check it out early. It's amazing, the modest exterior really does belie what waits inside- thanks so much for the tip-off Genie, I would have completely missed it with out you.
