Monument du Henri de Lorraine, Eglise Saint-Roch, Paris
The Monument du Henri de Lorraine, Comte d'Harcourt, which in English translates to the Monument of Henry of Lorraine, Count of Harcourt was sculpted in marble back in 1693 and placed within the former Eglise des Feuillants, a church and convent that was on the Rue Saint Honore before being destroyed at the start of the 1800s. Yet the monument was saved and it was moved to the Eglise Saint-Roch where it has remained ever since.
