Bronze composed of several pieces. Complete sword and scabbard included.

The meditation and intensity of Joan of Arc's prayer captivate those who look at her. We understand that, more than any other, this sculpture was so identified with the young princess, torn from life so early, whose faith and piety were recognized virtues. Marie d'Orléans decided to intensify the feminine character of her heroine, by lengthening her tunic with a simplicity of lines that touches perfection. The military elements are moved aside, placed on a cippe, placed to the left rear of Joan of Arc. The gauntlets are arranged in such a way that they evoke two hands in prayer. And from behind, the helm of extreme sobriety.
This very interior statue has had an astonishing legacy that you can discover in the blog of the Art and History gallery:
The astonishing posterity of Marie d'Orléans and her Joan of Arc in prayer
