For this month's angel, Rosemary writes:
In the center of a leafy Paris square stands a beautiful bell tower, bereft of its church and without its carillon. Once an essential part of the Saint Jacques-de-la-Boucherie Church, the tower dates to 1523. The church itself was disassembled during the Revolution, its stones sold off piece by piece, yet the tower was saved thanks to a clause in the bill of sale preventing its demolition. Placed in the square in 1836, today we can climb its 300 very steep steps for a magnificent perspective of the city and the Seine, and appreciate a close-up view at the evangelists adorning its summit.
This angel – meant to represent a winged man – symbolizes Saint Matthew, whose gospels narrate the life of Jesus. The original Gothic sculpture was recreated in 21st century style, hence its streamlined form and minimalist detail.
