This first HD photo shows three statues that are located to the left hand side of the centre door in the porch of the Eglise Saint Germain l'Auxerrois, and from left to right these depict the Queen of Sheba, King Solomon and Saint Vincent of Saragossa.
Now these statues were restored in the 1800s by a team of architects including Viollet le Duc and Victor Baltard and French sculptors that worked on many different churches in Paris to bring these historical monuments back to their former glory.
But this next photograph shows the location of these statues depicting the Queen of Sheba, King Solomon and Saint Vincent of Saragossa, on the porch by the main central door to the Eglise Saint Germain l'Auxerrois.
And incredibly, the only other church in Paris that still has a porch is the Sainte Chapelle located on the Ile de la Cite, but you can find this historical building, which was once the royal church for kings residing at the Palais du Louvre, at the Place du Louvre opposite the Cour Carree courtyard of the famous tourist attraction of The Louvre.
