Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
Raphael the archangel gazes steadily ahead above the door of marvelous Romanian Orthodox chapel placed under the protection of the archangels. It was believed that in rendering visible that which was not, the image would serve as witness to the existence of the divine cosmos. Portrayed in dazzling gold and colored mosaic, his hands open in prayer, Rafael is limned according to the canon of 6th-century Byzantine icons: elongated nose, small mouth, and large almond-shaped eyes. Because they know God, sacred figures were presented as impassive and calm.
Church of the Holy Archangels, 9, rue Jean de Beauvais, 5th arrondissement (Metro: Maubert-Mutualité)
