I Posted some photographs of the Mourners a few days ago from an exhibition in Los Angeles. These are plaster casts of the Mourners from the museum of The City of Architecture and Heritage in Paris and seeing these copies was my introduction to the Mourners. Apart from the strange presence of the  small figures, they are extraordinary feats of casting, as the folds and hoods present numerous undercuts. Around these figures are full-sized casts of gothic church entrances.
