Notre Dame Fire
« on: April 15, 2019, 06:16:01 PM »
Posting this here because the towers of the cathedral were the inspiration for St. Galenís cathedral in Noir. This is pretty horrifying in terms of the loss of history, art, and if I am not mistaken there are a number of important Catholic relics stored here too.

An unfortunate bit of business, but at least it wasn't totally destroyed and a fair deal was saved in terms of relics, artwork and such. I think the stained glass ended up surviving as well.

Yeah, that was a bit shocking, but I heard most of the art and important relics had already been stored away safely since the fire happened in the middle of renovations.

Yeah it's a tragic fire,I heard some of the stained glass was destroyed unfortunately. It's also shocking cause it's mainly a stone structure if I understand correctly.
