Aucamville Project 11: Mary on the Cross

Toulouse is known as “la Ville Rose” (the Pink City) because of the brick with which its buildings have been constructed since at least the Middle Ages.  These bricks are not the smallish rectangular jobbies you might think of in American or English construction.  In Toulouse and the surrounding areas the principle brick is called a “forain” and is about 45 x 25 cm and 5 cm thick.
