Posted by Cataudella on Instagram a few days before Notre-Dame de Paris caught fire in April 2019, this “3D Live Sketch” of the Catholic cathedral honors the 13th-century structure that is considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. The church is currently being rebuilt exactly as it appeared before the fire. The reconstruction is expected to be completed by Spring 2024, in time for the opening of the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris.
