Cluny Museum - Kings of Judah Exhibit, France

This was a temporary exhibit in solidarity with Cathedral Notre Dame de Paris following the recent terrible fire. The Kings of Judah were on the Cathedral before the Revolution and the sculptures were beheaded because the revolutionaries thought they were kings of France. The lost heads were recovered in 1977 and the Cluny Museum has had them ever since. This exhibit was only until July of 2019 probably because some other exhibit was already scheduled but we were fortunate enough to be in Paris during the time they were on view.
