Stoning Of Saint Stephen Sculpture By Gabriel Thomas

This first HD photo shows the ornate sculptured detailing on the facade of the Eglise Saint Etienne du Mont, which was produced during the restoration of this church after many features were destroyed during the French Revolution, which is a shame considering the original facade was constructed in the 1600s.

And called the Stoning of Saint Stephen, this is a scene depicting Saint Stephen being stoned to death after being accused of blasphemy, which was produced in 1863 by the French sculptor Gabriel Jules Thomas who was born in 1824 and attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts, wnning the Prix de Rome and eventually teaching at the school.

Stoning Of Saint Stephen Eglise Saint Etienne Du Mont

Now a tympanum is actually an architectural word to describe either a triangular or semi-circular decorative aspect located above a door or entrance way, and tympana are often used on religious buildings to depict religious scenes.

So this is exactly what you can see in this image showing the entrance to the Eglise Saint Etienne du Mont, which is a historical church located in the Latin Quarter of Paris, right by the famous tourist attraction called The Pantheon on the square known as the Place du Pantheon.
