EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the interior of the former abbey church, Abbatiale Saint-Volusien de Foix. Stepping into this sacred space feels like stepping back in time to the 17th century, with its exquisite choir seating dating back to around 1670. Originally from the Saint-Sernin church in Toulouse, these intricately carved seats are a testament to the craftsmanship of the French School during this period. The atmosphere within this historic abbey church is palpable as you gaze upon this photograph. The warm hues of aged wood and timbers create a sense of tranquility and reverence. Every detail has been carefully preserved, allowing us to appreciate not only the artistry but also the historical significance of this piece. As your eyes explore further, you can almost hear echoes of prayers and hymns that once filled these hallowed walls. This image transports us to a time when faith was deeply intertwined with daily life. Located in Foix, Occitanie, France, Abbatiale Saint-Volusien holds an important place in both local and European history. It stands as a reminder of France's rich cultural heritage and its enduring commitment to religious expression. The presence of grotesque sculptures adds an intriguing element to this visual narrative. These whimsical figures seem out-of-place amidst such solemn surroundings yet add a touch of playfulness that contrasts beautifully with their surroundings. Through Paul Maeyaert's lens, we are given access to an intimate view inside one corner of this magnificent building—a glimpse into centuries past where art meets spirituality. This print serves as a timeless reminder that beauty can be found even in places long forgotten by time.
