New Reliquary for St Fris of Bassoues

Saint Fris Reliquary, Bassoues.

Jacques Dubarry de la Salle (90 !)

He came to the workshop with the idea to search the drawers for some forgotten leather panel he could use as a covering for Saint Fris’s  new reliquary.

He came, He saw, He went (with a panel under the arm)

Jacques, here lecturing on marbles, one of his great passions, he is at the origin of the Marble Museum in Bagnères-de-bigorre which is soon to open doors

Ivory roof tiles comes from ancient piano touches, the woodwork form bits and pieces made and found in his workshop and a gilt leather panel from my drawer. All the work and intelligence by: Jacques !!

This reliquary reflects the spirit of the remote area I live in, small budget, great creativity, good will….. I love it.

Some pictures in situ at the Basilique St Fris will follow in a later posting.

As always

Fred
