Paris Sketchbook

This dude is St. Germain, a bishop of Paris, who was known for his love of the poor. His monks were so afraid that he’d give everything away that they rebelled against him. He died in 576. For the next 900 years his relics were carried in procession through the streets of Paris. This is a sketch of a wooden statue of his eminence in the church that’s named for him.
