I suppose it's not surprising that Joan of Arc is omnipresent in churches and chapels in France.
Of course, being a hero and saint or a villain depends a lot on who wrote the history books but for me, as an uninvolved observer - neither English nor French, she was a woman who beat the men in their century old "games".
The first feminist so to speak.

In the Abbey Church of Saint Martial de Paunat there was a statue of Joan of Arc as well.
I find the first two to give a very different feel.

Thank you, Dossy, Allan, Dave, Miriam, Mike and Karen!
Very much appreciated!

The 3rd image was actually the first one I took. I showed it last here because the different feel from #1 & #2 get combined in that one.
