Photographer's Note

This mosaic entitled 鼎oronation of our Blessed Mother is in the Basilica of the Rosary (Notre Dame du Rosaire de Lourdes) above the altar in the 5th of the 擢ive Glorious Mysteries chapels. On the top part Our Lady is surrounded with Saints and below on the left Saint Bernadette Soubirous (she was canonized in 1933) is shown in the company of the people who were instrumental in making Lourdes a world famous shrine. There are 15 Chapels of Mysteries in the Basilica, each decorated with mosaics. These mosaics were made over a period of just 12 years by the master mosaic maker of the 19th century, G.D. Facchina, they cover about 2000 mイ surface area. In 2006-7 the interior and exterior of the basilica were extensively renovated and the mosaics were restored. There are two other pictures of the mosaics in the Workshop.
