Sainte Suzanne Statue By Francois Duquesnoy

Here you can see a photo we took showing the Carrara marble statue of Sainte Suzanne, which was sculpted by the artist Francois Duquesnoy between the years 1629 and 1633, and this was designed to represent the Roman virgin martyred in the 3rd century, and was originally meant for the Notre Dame de Lorette in Rome, but ended up in the collections of the Comte d'Orsay.

Marble Statue Of Sainte Suzanne

However, this marble statue has sometimes been called Ceres, which is the Roman goddess of the harvest and fertility in mythology, and standing at 2 metres in height, this can now be seen between the south and south east pavilions of Palais du Luxembourg, although it was removed from public view between the years of 1974 and 1990, yet put back in place, this is classed as one of the Femmes Illustres, or Famous Women of the Jardin du Luxembourg.
