The allegory of Religion is portrayed as a young woman wearing a dress and a cloak with fringed edges pulled up to the top of her head like a veil. She is clasping a cross in her left hand and holding up a chalice in her right.
THE SCULPTOR SEBASTIEN SLODTZ
Of Flemmish origin, Sébastien Slodtz moved to Paris at a young age and became a student of Girardon, for whom he executed a certain number of models (the group of Aristaeus and Proteus in the park of Versailles). He was instantly considered one of the best craftsmen in the royal team, and as a result contributed to the sculpted work for the dome of the Invalides and the Chapel of Versailles.
