The artist and his Work
The masterpieces on display are from a one and only artist, Michel MAURICE (1937-2014), who, for 57 years, patientlty unveiled roots in the forests of his dear mountains of the Vosges (in the Lorraine region) and carved them into figures and animals, flowers and fairy and particular sceneries.
Yet, he did not carve them bluntly : he preferred being inspired by the natural shape of the root in order to enhance its beauty and ignite a spark of life in it.
The museum, which is run by a non-profit organisation, is well-known in the village of Cornimont. Its premises have been transferred to a former fabric factory to welcome its visitors comfortably. The museum has an access for disabled visitors who want to enjoy the museum.
A car park and coach park are available nearby. You cannot miss the museum, at the croassroads
