Jules Verne's Tomb, Amiens, France

"Vers l'Immortalite et l'Eternelle jeunesse"

Tomb (Photographs and Postcards) Amiens and Nantes Monuments

The following are images of the Tomb of Jules Verne. It is located in the Madeleine cemetery (cimetiere de la Madeleine) in Amiens, France (a city north-east of Paris). It is very impressive, showing the figure of Jules Verne emerging from the tomb, pushing the tomb's slab back, stretching his hand out to the heavens! It was designed by Albert-Dominique Roze (1861-1952) , and was erected on the grave in 1907.

The title of the sculpture is "Vers l'Immortalite et l'Eternelle jeunesse" (Towards Immortaility and Eternal Youth)
(Note: these words do not appear anywhere on the tomb itself)
