Belle and Rebl-that’s the motto for the city of La Rochelle. It has an interesting history including being a Protestant holdout against the French king and it certainly is beautiful. I enjoyed showing a friend around the other day.
There was an interesting sculpture in iron with the title of Ancestors. Can you see the little figures reading from the head of the one below them? I think it’s like learning from what went before from our ancestors. Some of the little figures fragmented into pieces. I’d like to read something about what the artist was trying to get across.
