Weathered Saints

The Rouen Cathedral was in the midst of repairing some of the pinnacles when we visited last July. Inside they had placed some of statues of saints from the exterior facade that were too weathered or in danger of collapse. Occasionally, when repairing these types of structures, a replacement piece will be created to take the place of the original. Notice how they are all looking down, since they were up high on the side of the church.
