Chosen as the featured memorial, November 2002 because we have not had a sculpture before. This one is hidden away in an unknown corner of the Marolles, unless you are sick, in which case he greets you as you arrive for your operation. The great man is holding a scalpel, much in the manner of a saint holding his/her attribute.
