I still haven't got through all our photos from the first week of school holidays, and already it is the last day of the second week...
Dampierre-sur-Linotte: Stephane described his work for a company that makes bronze statues. They cast the works of sculptors/artists, and Stephane's job is finishing off the sculptures once they have been cast. We were able to see some of the finished works, like this caricature of a lawyer striding towards the courthouse across the street in Vesoul.
He pointed out the technicalities of the process, showing us where the joins were made, and which pieces were cast separately.
We found another one of the statues at the citadelle in Besançon, and another on the street in Besançon.

A big man or a small boy? - or both?
