The Church of Eaux-Puiseaux was built between 1853 and 1864 on the Trots hill, between Eaux and Puiseaux, facing north. This church is very refined which produces in the visitor a striking aspect of grandeur. Two chapels are located on each side of the choir: one is dedicated to the Virgin and the other to Saint Nicolas, which housed two remarkable statues of the “Sainterie” of Vendeuvre from the 19th century (Saint Vincent and Saint Nicolas). The contemporary stained glass windows were made between 2014-2015 by Flavie Vincent-Petit, master glassmaker in Troyes, to replace those that had been destroyed during the storm of 1999. They address the theme of the origin of the World “Creation”. The artist’s objective was to transcribe the image of the Pays d’Othe and Eaux-Puiseaux in order to make it a collaborative work. The concept was to involve the local population in the project. The inhabitants were able to participate by bringing photos and objects. In the choir, the five bays tell of the creation of the cosmos. In the transept is the bay of Adam and Eve and just opposite, the bay of the Word (the word of God). In the nave, we find the creation of animals and plants, of the fauna and flora of Eaux-Puiseaux and Aube collected by the inhabitants and thus interpreted by the artist. Plants from the forest, orchard, vegetable garden, medicinal plants, fields (cereals, etc.).
