Statues in Brittany, France

Hello Sunday Lovelies !Hello les amis du dimanche !
Here today are some pictures of statues taken during my vacation this summer in Brittany, as this week is this of the S for the #alphabethunt, so I take this opportunity to show them to you before the letter T point the tip of his nose, as we say in french 😁Voici aujourd'hui quelques photos de statues prises lors de mes vacances cet été en Bretagne, car cette semaine est celle de la chasse aux S , donc j'en profite pour vous les montrer avant que la lettre T ne pointe le bout de son nez 😁

The following statue was accompanied by a magnificent glow which haloed it of even more mysticity ... 😊Celle-ci était assortie d'un magnifique halo qui l'auréolait d'encore plus de mysticité...😊
it is absolutely not an added effect but on the contrary a natural effect in the Breton sky of that day at the Pointe du Raz in the extreme tip of Finistère ...ce n'est absolument pas un effet rajouté mais au contraire un effet naturel dans le ciel breton de ce jour-là à la Pointe du Raz dans l'extrême pointe finistère...

The statues were made in 1870 by a Breton sculptor, Yann Larc'hantec, to replace the statues of the apostles who had disappeared during the revolution and found beheaded in 1849.Les statues, elles, ont été réalisées en 1870 par un scuplteur breton, Yann Larc'hantec, pour remplacer les statues des apôtres qui avaient disparues pendant la révolution et retrouvées décapitées en 1849

Haha yes that sounds silly to behead statues, but at that revolution time in France they beheaded real people so I suppose they were angry people that thought these stone people was worth to be their target ..😉

!ENGAGE25

Or they were short of people to behead and decided to go on the statues lol

Love holy statues and they are really beautiful the background clouds and sun make them look so powerful and spiritual.

Thanks @bigsambucca ! 😉 I got some great help from the sky and this wonderful halo perfectly on time 😊

Statues of great history, old land are all beautifully photographed with description.

Sadly too many are being defaced of late, making me feel that some, where possible, should be stored in special parks or places for history to be treasured.

thank_you_whale.png for your appreciation my dear ! 😉

!ENGAGE 25

Wow! Great photos! I especially liked the first photo very much. The background looks great.
