PLACE LIGIER RICHIER

PLACE LIGIER RICHIER

In 1909, Léon Vadel, a local sculptor, made a bronze statue representing the famous Renaissance sculptor Ligier Richier. But a few years later, under the occupation, the statue was melted down by German soldiers. Vadel therefore decided to build a new one after the war. Completed in 1934, the sculpture shows a young Ligier Richier, holding a chisel in one hand and a mass in the other. For his face, Vadel was inspired by that of the angel present in the Tombstone of the church of Saint-Etienne.
