Angel of the Month

Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
Gleaming above the courtyard of the Galerie Robert de Sorbon, two magnificent gilded angels epitomize the opulent reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Arrayed in intricate, open wings and lushly draped, one measures the dimensions of the earth with a compass, while the other readies a tablet for notation. Above them, a complex sundial indicates hourly markings in full lines, and half-hours in dotted; diurnal arches are diagrammed along with indications for the 21st of each month. Jean Picard, an astronomer abbot, designed the sundial with its elegant winged figures in 1676.
Sorbonne University, 17 rue de la Sorbonne, 5th arrondissement (Metro: Cluny-La Sorbonne, St Michel)
