Background 'Paris du Haut de Notre-Dame'. The richly decorated wooden spire, added to the cathedral in the 19th century by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, was lost in the 2019 fire, but the accompanying sculptures of saints survived because they had been removed for restoration. The whole feature is being recreated as it was.
