I joined Lisa the other day for a visit to the Cluny Museum. We wanted to see the Lady and the Unicorn tapestries which were now housed in a renovated space. But first, I want to show you what else is in the museum.
First you enter the courtyard. It is of 16th century design and was built by Jacques dâ€™Amboise, Abbot of Cluny. The cobblestone Cour dâ€™Honneur contains flamboyant Gothic building wings with seashell motifs popular at that time. There are gargoyles and turreted walls with dormer windows.
Inside the museum you will find this heads which were discovered in a garden in the 1970’s. There were once the heads of statues of the Judean Kings on front of Notre Dame which were cut off during the Revolution even though they had nothing to do with France.
