L’ange du mal and Le genie du mal - Guillaume Geefs
Always reblog. Also, extra points because it’s both versions instead of just Le genie du mal, which is the more popular of the two.
Fun fact: L’ange du mal (first photo) was thought to be “too sublime” by the cathedral that hired Geefs, so they had him sculpt another with more demonic features and less ‘alluring’ so that parishioners wouldn’t be distracted. Thus, Le genie du mal was created.
