You are welcome, and thanks for the PMs!

CuteCatFaith says:

Heck, how should I know? Ha ha ha!! The French do say she and Jesus had a
child named Sarah and they made it to France on the Mediterranean, are the
source of the Merovingian lineage. I think Jesus had a brother named Simon,
too. Here’s my question back — who was Adam’s first wife?

FrenchQtrCrawler says:

The Mary work is really cool. Its nice to see her the way she was meant to
be displayed, you know….not on the 1/2 shell like here in the States 🙂

Bert Powers says:

I would like it there for the art alone.

Joe Serrano says:

LOL,….huh?!! Adam of the Garden of Eden fame, forbidden to eat the
forbidden fruit and who later was paired up with EVE! Don’t tell me the
first man and first woman ended up divorcing each other?!! Hehehehe…..XD

Joe Serrano says:

Always some interestin’ stuff to see here good buddy, that hair blowin’
hangin’ there from the roof,….looks like the museum staff gave Cousin
It(Addams Family) a hair cut and then hanged him there,….hehehe…from
the bizarre to the totally exceptionally BEAUTIFUL, Mary Magdalene, covered
from head to toe in her beautiful, wavy hair, what an EXTRAORDINARY WORK OF
ART!!! Thumbs up beautiful!! =)

TheTrueRae Smile says:

Absolutely beautiful statue! What a technique! The thing that was floating
above, like some sea creature (smile) what was it? Was that hair? Awesome
share Sis! Love and HUGS

CuteCatFaith says:

For that to be done in the 1300s is pretty amazing … early Renaissance
time … someone really poured all their artistry into that statue, eh? I
suspect it survived the first French revolution in the 18th c. when pretty
much everything “religious” got trashed because someone took it off the
church it decorated and buried it somewhere. A lot of people did that,
risking their lives, and also, hey, can you imagine the work involved?
THAT’S devotion!

CuteCatFaith says:

The basic “pretty stuff” was absolutely gorgeous. They really curated this
one terrifically. There was something for everyone here … neat-o!

Ian Duff says:

That last statue was really beautiful especially since it is so old. It
almost looks modern with that technique

CuteCatFaith says:

Kids can be terribly wild and unruly in Italy, I’ve noticed. A lot of them
here are quite supressed, and it’s kind of hard on them I think. A basic
French rule is “French children eat everything” and usually, whatever the
adults eat at table, the children eat, too, at the same time and knowing
etiquette whether it’s actually followed daily or not. No “kiddie foods”
here. Restaurants will offer a smaller portion MAYBE but very few have a
kids’ menu, I have found.

CuteCatFaith says:

Yes, children love this place. The private museums have some pretty
questionable security, we’ve noted. At La Maison Rouge, which is expensive
but quite cool, over by the Bastille Monument, we could have done just
about anything and a guard was fixated on her telephone.

CuteCatFaith says:

I agree. I had to go back and look at it again and there is another clip to
put up. The ones from near the end of the show are really fascinating and
ghastly.

Joe Serrano says:

There are some historical accounts that say Mary Magdalene was Our Lord
Jesus’ wife? true or false.

TheWaterlily2012 says:

Maybe kids are better behaved there than here. I would be worried something
would happen to it with no protection. Thanks for sharing your outing!

TheWaterlily2012 says:

Wow, I’m surprised they don’t have something around her to protect her
since she’s so old. At least a rope or something. Do they let children in
there?

ilovety65 says:

thanx for the tour!

CuteCatFaith says:

Yes, we saw more of her hair thingies at MACVAL which I posted a month or
two ago, a contemporary art museum in Vitry-sur-Seine just outside Paris.
There was a room with several of these … hairballs? … and fans. Really
wild-lookin’! Never saw anything like ’em! That Mary Magdalene statue is
just … incredible. 14th c. yeow.
