Notre Dame de Paris Update: Here are a couple of recent shots showing the repairs to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. Progress is slow due to the discovery of weak walls that formerly supported the wood roof structure and the loving but painstaking process of documenting all the historic decorative stonework.
Luckily, there are artifacts and models used to create the original stonework that have been archived in museums. These items make replacing many of the lost decorative items a bit easier.
