Décapitée

Decay Statue Versailles palace
While we're on the subject of decay, these statues located below one of the 'one hundred steps' staircases below the palace's orangerie are in dire need of attention, don't you think? Their counterparts at the other 'one hundred steps' staircase are faring better, VDP had shown them to you here... VDP is away for the weekend, posts are scheduled, see you soon!

Puisque nous sommes sur le sujet du délabrement, ces statues qui se situent en bas de l'un des escaliers des cent marches sous l'orangerie du château auraient bien besoin d'un peu d'attention, vous ne trouvez pas ? Leurs pendants de l'autre escalier des cent marches se portent un peu mieux, VDP vous les avait montrées ici... VDP est absente pour le weekend, les billets sont prépostés, à très bientôt !

THAT is some serious decay.

Aged beautifully.

I do agree. They could use some cleaning and care.

Demembrement classique!

Maybe the statue came to life and got so excited it lost its head? Maybe?

Our environment seems to be very harmful to artwork!

They are charming despite the ravages of time and neglect.
