Monk Head

 105.00

Monk Head is part of our series of plaster decorative pieces.

Years ago, Sebastien (one of our founders) was lucky enough to work on a restoration project of the Saint Sulpice Church in Paris.  He found these monk heads that were about 200 years old in the basement of the church and was able to keep some of them. They were made by a technique used at the time of Rodin. The sculptors handmade each piece separately: heads, arms, legs, torsos. Then they put the pieces together to form a body. Today, we are happy to be able to offer these very special pieces casted from molds made from the original sculptures of the Saint Sulpice Church in Paris.

You can choose your favorite monk: Benedict, Bruno, Caligero, Camillo, Dominic and Vincent.

These are made by hand, therefore there may be a slight variation in size, texture and color. This is the beauty of handmade.

The Monk Heads are made to order and made of plaster.
