The statue of "Our Good Mother", 11.20 metres high,
is considered to be the largest object in the world
made of galvanoplastic copper (by immersing the central part in an electrolytic bath of copper sulfate).
This copper statue was then gilded to protect it against sea air corrosion.
Also in Avignon I found a big one...
This photo is part of my visual diary about my trip to Marseille.
