  1. I've seen the original in Rouen, France, at the Old Market Place where she died! It's by Maxime Real de Sarte. He did several images of her, in Domremy [parish church next to her birthplace], Vaucouleurs, and in Paris.

    Was this statue placed in honor of her canonization? It was NINETY years ago this past May 16!

    This is so cool, to see a statue of St. Joan in Rome!
