Restoration / Repairs

Date of restoration and/or repairs :

This cross was fixed using cement on a stone base, but the cement is cracked and the cross has become wobbly.
The off-shoots of the tree were putting pressure on it and it was in danger of falling.

In the spring of 2021, it was taken to Didier Fauguet's workshop for restoration.
The tree's off-shoots must now be cut back regularly.

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.


Les croix de type Crozant sont implantées entre Oïl and Oc sur le territoire du “croissant marchois”.
