Restoration / Repairs

Date of restoration and/or repairs :

The front face is curved.
The angle of the arms has been specially cared for: a rounded slant that gives it an overall impression of lightness.
This is a large cross, perhaps made of cut stone, and the sculptor showed his virtuosity, he was a master stonecutter...
The cross is slanted at an angle but it is not wobbly.
It should be paved with rough lime paving to protect it from humidity. It is surrounded by trees which protect it.

How it was made

Granite is ubiquitous here, it is everywhere in the fields

Each of the inventoried crosses was made by a different stonemason.

Cependant, il semble qu’ils aient utilisé the same model ou “patron”.

Each carver made his sculpture from some local granite stone known as a fieldstone.

Find out more with l’expertise de Didier Fauguet, stone sculptor and carver.
