I thought they really suited the chateau...and gave it a 21st century vibe! Have a look....http://www.vasconcelos-versailles.com/
|A sparkling 21st century 'heart' chandelier|
made from red plastic strips.
|Royal court shoes in the Hall of Mirrors!!|
Reflections of marbles, paintings, chandeliers everywhere...
even on the pots and pans!
|Titled "Marilyn", the shoe sculptures|
were created entirely from pots and pans.
Marie-Antoinette would have loved these for sure.
|"THAT" boudoir...with escape hatch/doorway below.|
|On guard....in the State Apartments.|
|Meet Joseph-Antoine......doesn't he look smart!|
|Enormous, colourful textile sculptures, hovered from the ceilings|
of various galleries in the State Apartments.
Were they angels? chandeliers? sea creatures?
Whatever they were, they were brilliant!
|Pierre, being an old legal eagle, loved this marble of Voltaire (below)....|
that wonderful philosopher, poet and writer...
his thoughts and ideas influenced the French Revolution.
|He looks kind doesn't he? And he was one of the first|
in France to be writing about the need for
civil liberties, free speech and freedom of religion.
|Of course, I loved the rusty wire teapot....there was a jug too.|
|Yes...they played billiards in the Petit Trianon....it was a place for parties!|
And this is where Marie and her friends would have their evenings soirées. Can't you just imagine the fun and games?
