Eglise Paroissiale Saint Pierre


From the tiny community of Jouy le Potier, population 1388, we find Santa and two of his reindeer constructed from clay pots... Potier = potter... The town was especially known for its pottery in Gallo-Roman times and the Middle Ages.

The Virgin Mary is overlooking them from the northern wall of  the Saint Pierre parish church, which dates from the 12th century.
