Immortali memoriae Ludovici magni

Le roi est mort Versailles
Oops... VDP forgot to post these final pictures of the 'the king is dead' exhibition. It is the entrance of the exhibition but also the exit... And you had seen this staircase before, it was here, albeit not draped in black. The exhibition is closing on 21 February, should you be around, go. It's superb.

Oups... VDP a oublié de poster ces deux dernières photos de l'expo "le roi est mort". C'est l'entrée, mais aussi la sortie de l'expo, visible jusqu'au 21 février. Hâtez-vous, elle est superbe. Vous aviez vu l'escalier ici.

The stairs are really cool. The urn looks like something I've seen in an Indiana Jones movie.

J'imagine la richesse de cette expo. Tu as réussi à voler une photo ?
La photo dans l'escalator : superbe et vertigineuse.
Amitiés.
