Sunday Paris Church Series - L'ange


Église de la Sainte-Trinité

This magnificent papier maché angel was part of one of the most beautiful nativities I have ever seen. Made, I'm assuming, from papier maché, each figure was lit from within.  I'll share more next December !

First of all, I ADORE the new header. And next I love this photo. Superb, all superb. Love the new font.

I've just found your lovely blog - coup de foudre!

Britttany, Isn't it amazing!

Jilly, I'm glad you like the header. I do the text in Picasa now and don't use Google's fonts etc. Now I can put the text wherever I want it.

Joe and Deborah,
Welcome! I'm so glad you left comments. Please come back often.

I can tell that this was a memorable nativity by just seeing this one angel. The effect of the lighting is wonderful.

Alexa said...

Magnifique, V! What a brilliant idea (so to speak) to light this from within. Do we get to see the whole thing next Christmas?
