For this month's angel, Rosemary writes:
I had the pleasure of recently traveling through the French countryside, where we came upon a lovely old church called the Eglise Saint-Robert. An ancient priory church dating back to the 11th century, and restored over the ages, it is today a classified monument. Tucked in a niche and bathed in light, this beautiful polychrome statue of an angel delicately holds in her hands a reliquary—a gilded casket used to hold saints’ relics. Her solemn expression is enlivened by a red and gold embroidered cape and gilded wings. It appears to have been created during the 19th century in a neo-Renaissance style.
Ville of Saint-Robert
Region: Nouvelle-Aquitaine, in the Corrèze
Accessible by car, approximately 5 hours from Paris
