Didier FAUGUET estimates that it takes one month to make a cross..
Of the crosses studied, some seem to have been carved with a concern for symmetry, others were made in a cruder manner. Some crosses were made with great skill et sont le fait de maitres dans leur art, d’autres sont fabriquées more crudely made. They seem to have been made by "apprentices".
Since time immemorial in our region, many people had the basics of stone-cutting, if only to make a more or less straight face on the stone walls of their homes.
La plupart de ceux qui ont fabriqué ces croix ne travaillaient pas avec des notions de géométrie, mais “à l’œil” d’où la légère asymmetry of the crosses.
