After 9 hours of fighting with fire and extinguish the fire in the Cathedral of Notre Dame Irena Karpa has shared a new Instagram message. In it she noted that: “Notre Dame to the Parisians – an incredibly powerful symbol. Even if you’re not a Catholic, not a critic and not a tourist that wants a selfie on the background of the rotunda, you are very painful to watch as burns that seemed eternal.”

She also added that it was difficult to understand the “fragility of the art”, indeed, among the day-to-day a monument of architecture is perceived as something eternal and immutable.

People were crying, just standing on the quays and bridges. Catholics quietly sang a hymn to the virgin Mary – a very surreal moment to stand there in the night. But we-Cyril Trebuchet talked about the fact that every day passed by with a dog walking, metro went and saw the Cathedral as something that is inviolable and will be there always, something what I’m looking at peripheral vision. It’s so frustrating – to understand the fragility of art. Nothing is eternal, regardless of whatever security system was not powerful, whatever strong was the Museum walls… Everything is lovely – a mandate from the sand, which sooner or later destined to vanish as we talked with Julia Weber. Moreover, it is necessary to appreciate the moments of beauty. They are fleeting,
– left heartfelt thoughts Irena Karpa in social networks.
