Qtr. 4 Homework # 6

Apostles 6


For next week I would like you to choose an apostle from the copper sculptures that were saved from the tragic fire at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris During Holy Week. The nine foot tall sculptures had been taken down for cleaning just four days before the blaze last Monday.  The photos above show some of the 12 Apostles, which were all sculpted in copper by Eugene-Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc who was instructed by King Louis Philippe 1 to start the restoration of Notre Dame Cathedral and these depict the twelve religious figures that were chosen by Jesus to go on a mission.
