"Credo - Emmanuel Fremiet 1824-1910"
The first Credo was born in 1885. Made of plaster, it is exhibited in Antwerp. Emmanuel Frémiet then sinks a bronze which is an immediate success: it sells 112 editions in only two years and three months! The composition of the statue is affirmed, the vertical vision being broken the horizontal form composed by the two arms and the phylactery. The rest of the statue is sober, even if the detail is chiseled precision. The eye must be captivated only by the general appearance of the Crusader, and by the banner which expresses its Faith. Emmanuel Frémiet liked to relate this little anecdote reported by his grandson, Philippe Fauré-Frémiet in his book "Frémiet", concerning the inspiration that had guided him in his creation of the Creed. One evening when he was in his studio, he learned from a friend's letter that one of his most fervent prayers had been answered. A burst of gratitude raises him, head bent and arms cross, reciting his Creed. In remembrance of this moment of grace, he carved this Credo on which one finds the features of the sculptor in those of the Crusader.
