Fragments

These are porcelain fragments. They are all that is left of the porcelain castle (le Trianon de porcelaine) that once stood in the palace grounds before le Grand Trianon was built. I showed you the former porcelain building and told you about it here.

Voici des fragments de porcelaine. C'est tout ce qu'il reste du Trianon de porcelaine qui s'élevait jadis à la place de l'actuel Grand Trianon. Je vous l'avais montré et conté son histoire ici.

How incredible that there was a porcelain castle! At least these fragments are left, such an arresting photo, esp. considering there was once a castle! (Thanks for the good travel wishes:)

Very cool. I clicked back to your original post. Very charming.

Often, it seems, the best we can do with the past is resurrect fragments and try to figure out the pieces. But then, again, that is perhaps all we need to do. The past is past and the future is out there and all we have is this instant.

But here the fragments are together so we can't ignore them. And they reflect a lot of beauty so maybe we should be happy.

I'm going to click on your links now before I get in too much more trouble!

A porcelain palace! What a special idea. It is too bad that it did not endure.

Wonderful idea to preserve and exhibit the remains in such a way.

The porcelain palace was beyond amazing Ciel, who would have even thought it was possible, also that these artistically arranged pieces are all that's left of it.
