Гюго не видел ни статуй в нишах ни на одном из 3-х главных порталов, ни 28 статуй (на переднем фасаде) французских королей от Хильдеберта и до Филиппа-Августа 2 (13 в). Но это не доказательство, что они были изваяны именно тогда. Но полное доказательство тому, они ВОССТАНОВЛЕНЫ (слово к месту) в 19 в., т.к. видны на гравюре 18 в. Замечу - доказательство полное, и материальное - гравюра и фото, и нарративное - свидетельство авторитетного современника. Из чего статуи сделаны - сейчас говорить не будем. Не говорим также как - по памяти, слепкам, осколкам или рисункам. Главное - статуи другие.

Музей Клюни в Париже, вернее - его коллекция готической скульптуры.

Head of Bearded Man from the north portal of the Notre-Dame of Paris.
Paris, 1220-1230
H. 0.65 m
Cl. 23606

"This head belonged to one of the 28 statues of kings placed over the portals on the entrance side of the Notre-Dame of Paris. Each statue had a height of approximately 3 metres 50. They represented kings of the Bible, ancestors of the Virgin Mary, patron of the cathedral. They were broken during the Revolution. At the time, they were believed to be statues of kings of France. By extraordinary chance, repair work being done in the basement of a Parisian bank in 1977 led to the discovery of more than 300 sculpture fragments, including 21 heads. In November 1998, one last sculpture, the Bearded Man's Head, was donated by the bank."

Apostle of the Sainte Chapelle. Paris, 1241-1248
H. 1.65 m
Paris, Sainte-Chapelle of the City Palace
Musée des Monuments français (Museum of French Monuments);

"In 1248, King Louis IX had the Holy Chapel consecrated. He had commissioned its construction to shelter the Crown of Thorns relic. The statues of the twelve apostles bearing their distinctive emblems and a consecration cross, standing before the pillars in the high chapel, formed a procession accompanying Christ, whose presence was represented by the reliquary. The statues were removed during the Revolution; six of them were not put back during the 19th century restorations, at which time they took their place at the Museum. Among these, one stands out with its melancholy expression highlighting the extraordinary quality of these pieces. They undeniably mark the height of what is known as the Parisian Classicism of the 13th century. The statues in the North Transept of the Notre Dame of Paris ou the rood screen of the Bourges Cathedral are other examples. The balanced pose, the calmed drape, the serence expression all harmoniously evoke the rare moment of art in peaceful perfection."
