The story

This statue is the copy of a marble sculpted by Germain Pilon for the tomb of Henri II’s heart in the church of the couvent des Célestins in Paris. It is nowadays at the Musée du Louvre. Germain Pilon knows the consecration with this realization and becomes the sculptor appointed to Catherine de Médicis. For these elegant figures, he adopts the mannerist style: the body is thin and slender, the chest is high and small, the head small and the neck elongated, the feet and hands are long with tapered fingers. This copy might have been made to be placed in a luxury aristocratic interior to reflect the power and the wealth of its owner. In fact, made for a king’s heart, this statue will sophisticate any interior !
