Discover an amazing work of art in the village of Masgot in the Creuse region where a local farmer, François Michaud, who was also a stone carver, decided to make granite sculptures of everything he held dear. The result is an astonishing hamlet of carved figures, animals and enigmatic shapes representing the beliefs and dreams of their creator.
The work of François Michaud is also very revealing of 19th century village life in Creuse, the story of emigration and the famous Maçons de la Creuse stonemasons. The village of Masgot is truly exceptional as the houses have been beautifully preserved and the naive sculptures spread around here and there on house fronts and walls are very unusual.
The village of Masgot is an absolute must to visit in Creuse
