Who entrusted Notre Dame gargoyles?

Who entrusted Notre Dame gargoyles?

Maybe you don’t know it but the gargoyles in Notre Dame of Paris were sculpted in the 19th century and were entrusted by a man named Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, the same who designed the internal structure of the Statue of Liberty.

View west over the city of Paris from the Galerie des Chimères of Notre-Dame de Paris. One of the famous gargoyles (chimères) of the cathedral can be seen at the left of the photograph. The River Seine is visible at the bottom of the photograph. The nearer bridge is the Petit Pont, and the further is the Pont St Michel. In the distance can be seen the distinctive shape of the Eiffel Tower, to the left of which can be seen the golden dome of the Dôme church, within the Hôtel des Invalides. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

In the 19th century, Notre Dame of Paris wasn’t the symbol of Paris that is actually. Some people wanted to demolish it… some others like Victor Hugo people don’t. In those times there was an architect, famous for his works of restoration of medieval buildings and his name was Viollet-le-Duc. He was the right person to save the cathedral of being demolished.
