Restoration / Repairs

Date of restoration and/or repairs :

This cross was found and installed by an inhabitant of the village who provided his millet millstone as a base.
Its former location is unknown; the Napoleonic map does not mention it (1865/2).

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.
