The Death of Saint-Innocent at the Louvre, Paris

3D model description

This gaunt image of Death stood at the center of the cemetery of the Innocents. On his shield, a quatrain recalls:

" He is alive ever so full of art.
Not of strength to strength
I do my dart strike
To yawn to their food
To Pray to God for trespasses "

At the closure of the cemetery, in 1786, the skeleton was brought to Saint- Gervais, then Notre Dame, where the arm was recreated by the sculptor Deseine, then placed in the Museum of French Monuments. It is now on permanent display at The Louvre, with some casts and copies found across France.
