Photographer's Note

SANT JOSEF, KALVAR TRONOAN, SANT YANN DROLIMON, BRO GERNE

SAINT JOSEPH, CALVARY OF TRONO沄, SAINT JEAN TROLIMON, BRITTANY

The Calvary of Tronoen (1450-1470) is the oldest monumental calvary of Brittany (click on the town name above to see other views). It is situated near the Chapel of Tronoen, in a remote place near the sea.
Most of the statues of this calvary are made of granite. They have been worn away by marine winds.
At the end of the calvary erection, they used the Kersanton stone. This microgranite is very smooth and easy to work when extracted, then hardens and become stable. The expression of Saint Joseph is as the sculptor made it. After that, the other great breton calvary have been made of Kersanton (and probably painted).
