Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Statues, Carvings, Sculptures


One of the most interesting, although slightly creepy, things I’ve ever seen is the Catacombs in Paris, France. One of the highlights is the amazing sculptures completed by a single person. The brochure downloaded from the official website describes it in the following way:

The sculptures in the Port-Mahon corridor, which are a highlight of the visit, were created by a quarryman named Décure, who had fought in the armies of Louis XV. In the walls of the quarry, Décure sculpted the fortress of Port-Mahon, the largest town on the island of Minorca., one of the Balearic Islands, where he is believed to have been held prisoner by the English.
