St Dominique

Saint Domonique

Saint Dominique is a Catholic church in the 14th arrondissement of Paris. What is most surprising about this church is the above statues which was deliberately carved after the likeness of French 1930’s actor Louis Jouvet. The Church is a mock bizantine church made of concrete and artificial stone. Its construction was started in 1914 and stopped because of World War I. It was resumed in 1921. The Jouvet bas-relief was added in the 1940’s. An aerial view of the church can be seen on Google Maps by clicking here.

  1. Haven’t got the faintest idea. I’d say because St Dominique is the patron saint of that church. Ok, that’s a bit feable, I admit to it 😉
