The Village of Lourdes held an international contest in 1931 asking artists from around    Europe to present models of Bernadette  sculptures for the jurying of the official statue of their saint.  Jacque and Suzanne Hartmann (husband and wife) co-sculpted this image of Bernadette with her lamb and won first place.  In 2007, Father Raymond Zambelli, Rector of the Shrine at Lourdes, visited our Shrine and presented us with the 3D mold and three bronze  statues as gifts to us.
