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.
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.
