Travel Tips for Dijon

An Owl That Brings Good Luck!

by hquittner

Carved into the stone of one of the chapel buttresses at the east end of Notre Dame is the image of an owl. This figure of unknown provenance gave rise to the name of the street Rue de la Chouette (Owl)and appears to be as old as the church. It has become the custom to believe that good luck comes from stroking the figure with the left hand and then touching the left chest (heart area). This picture was taken in 1992 and is of the original carving. I understand that vandals disfigured the image in 2002 and that a new object has had to be substituted. Good Luck!
The other picture is of the Apse of Notre Dame from further down the r. de la Chouette.

See the Kitchen at the Ducal Palace

by hquittner

The ducal kitchen is an immense structure next to the Bar Tower. It is so large that it is stillused for ceremonial gatherings. There are three pairs of giant hearths occupying three sides of the room. The ribbings above lead to a central vent hole. The size gives some indication of the number of people to be fed at an important gathering. Outside the kitchen are two guardian images and an ancient well with a protective suspension figure. You are entitled to this glimpse as part of your admission, so do not miss it.

Museum Fine Arts - Hebe and the Eagle of Jupiter.

by breughel

I ignored - shame on me - that Hebe was Zeus and Hera's youngest daughter and the goddess of youth and immortality. She was the cup bearer who served nectar to the Olympian Gods to give them everlasting youth.
The eagle of Zeus-Jupiter is the symbol of power and attribute of the god. In this statue the eagle can be considered as the messenger of Jupiter or his incarnation.

It is a superb marble statue, 2.50 m high, captivating all museum visitors. If you look at her back (photo 2) you have the impression that the wings of the eagle form part of the body of Hebe.
This statue, a highlight of the museum, was made by François Rude (Dijon 1784 - 1855) at the end of his life on order of his birth town.

===========================

J'avoue, à ma grande honte, que j'ignorais que Hébé était la fille de Zeus et d'Héra et la sœur de Mars. Pour les Romains c'était la déesse de la jeunesse, elle servait le nectar aux dieux de l'Olympe. La coupe tendue au bout de son bras est remplie de ce nectar de jeunesse.
L'aigle de Jupiter-Zeus est le symbole de la puissance et l'attribut de la divinité. Dans cette statue il peut être considéré comme le messager de Jupiter ou son incarnation.

La statue a été réalisée par François Rude (Dijon 1784 - 1855) à la fin de sa vie pour répondre à la demande de sa ville natale.
C'est une superbe statue en marbre (2,50 m de haut) qui ne manque pas de captiver le regard des visiteurs. Si vous l'approchez de dos vous avez l'impression que les ailes de l'aigle font partie du corps même d'Hébé.

Beaux Arts: Some Burgundian Art Treasures

by hquittner

The museum is proud of the local artists it has nurtured or outsiders it has encouraged when Burgundy was powerful. Philippe de Champaigne (17C) was born in Flanders but became French and a prominent location is reserved for his large religious canvas of the "Presentation at the Temple". On the ceiling of the Statue Gallery is a Pierre-Paul Prud'hon "copy" of a Cortone ceiling in the Barberini Palace in Rome "Triumph of Religion" (1787). He was the first Roman scholarship winner of the Beaux Arts and did this as a demonstration of what he had learned. Among a select number of 17-19C French canvases are displayed two busts, one of Jean-Philippe Rameau who was born in Dijon, by Caffieri, the other sittting before an emblematic Aubisson Tapestry is of Louis XIV by Coysevox. The entry to the museum is via the remains of the Sainte Chapelle which holds many ancient statues and in a protected niche displays a golden crown and an 11C crozier, both covered by an old wooden door bearing the seal of the Golden Fleece. With displays like this one wanders through the entire museum continually encountering its treasures in room after room.

Dijon

by custardpomme

Dijon is a lovely, quiet town with some very attractive architecture and some very delicious mustard ;-)
The famous mustard manufacturer Maille has a shop there but we found prices roughly the same as to what we pay here in Australia – although the variety was much greater there.

Nearby Beaune makes a wonderful day trip, with it’s beautiful palace and wine bars. Be sure to find a café or wine bar (preferably outside in the sunshine) and order a glass of their recommended red with a cheese plate – you’ll never want to leave!
