Transi de René de Chalon

Sculpted by Ligier Richier, in the year 1547, Transi de René de Chalon was built to honor the Prince of Orange. However, the sculpture is far from your regular memorials. A near-skeletal figure with torn skin and muscles, holding its heart in his hand, hardly looks like the 25 year old René de Chalon. But it was built to look like a decomposing corpse, as per specific instructions from the royal family. The reason behind this isn't clear, though some say it is to symbolize doing right by God even in death. Whatever the reasons, Transi de René de Chalon, which literally means "transforming René de Chalon", is a unique work of art and is often visited by art lovers from around the world.

Église Saint-Étienne

The church's primary attraction is the tomb of René de Châlon, Prince of Orange.The tomb bears the skeleton sculpture by Ligier Richier.
