20 Juin 1789 "Le serment du jeu de paume" 1/12 3D Model
First of the twelve high reliefs of the Place de la Republique in Paris France, the stone pedestal is girdled twelve bronze high-reliefs, works by Leopold Morice, connected by rosettes, arranged at the height of the eyes of passers-by. They constitute a chronology of events marking the history of the French Republic, between 1789 and 1880.
The oath of the Jeu de Paume is a solemn commitment of union taken June 20, 1789 in the room of the Jeu de Paume, Versailles, by 300 deputies of the third state, with which some members of the clergy and the nobility associate themselves during the The States General of 1789. They swore not to separate before the elaboration of a Constitution. This commitment, devoid of legal existence in the framework of the Ancien Régime still prevailing, has a strong symbolic and political impact, which makes it a decisive moment in the preludes of the French Revolution.
