In 1692, François Girardon made the bronze cast iron of a 7-metre-high equestrian statue of Louis XIV, erected in Place Louis le Grand (now Place Vendôme). Destroyed during the Revolution, only one foot remains today, preserved at the Carnavalet museum and a reduction realized during the lifetime of Louis XIV conserved at the Louvre.
This reproduction was made from a mould, made in direct contact with the original work. It was then patinated by hand: so many steps that require excellence of gesture and mastery of cutting-edge techniques.
