EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the interior of the Cathedral Sainte-Croix d'Orleans, showcasing a remarkable statue of an angel holding the crown of thorns. Taken around 1790 by the French School, this image transports us back to the 18th century, immersing us in its ornate and decorative beauty. The Cathedral Sainte-Croix, located in Orleans, Centre-Val de Loire, France, stands as a testament to religious devotion and architectural grandeur. Within its hallowed walls resides this exquisite statue that depicts an angel delicately cradling the crown of spines associated with Christ's crucifixion. The attention to detail evident in both the sculpture and its surroundings is truly awe-inspiring. The intricate craftsmanship brings life to every fold of fabric and feathered wing on display. This work of art exemplifies not only the skillful hands that created it but also serves as a symbol of faith and reverence within this sacred space. Photographer Paul Maeyaert has masterfully captured this moment in time, allowing viewers to appreciate every nuance and texture present within this stunning composition. The play between light and shadow adds depth to the scene while highlighting each delicate feature carved into stone. As we gaze upon this photograph, we are transported into another era—a time when artistry was celebrated through works such as these sculptures adorning places of worship. It reminds us that even centuries later, their beauty continues to captivate our hearts and minds. With all rights reserved until 2023 by © Paul Maeyaert, let us cherish this glimpse into history—a visual reminder that art transcends time itself.
