Sculpture Saturday #15

The equestrian statue of Louis XIV is located in the centre of the Peyrou promenade in Montpellier (Hérault). It was erected in 1828 and classified as a historic monument in 1954. This bronze statue is the second version of the representation of the king, the first one having been destroyed by the French Revolution in 1792 and turned into cannons. It’s based on the drawings of Jules Hardouin-Mansart (1646-1708), replicated by sculptor Jean-Baptiste Joseph Debay (1802-1862) and cast by Auguste-Jean-Marie Carbonneaux (1769 -1843).
