A Mosaic from Louis Pasteur’s Crypt
A mosaic from Louis Pasteur’s crypt (1896, Institut Pasteur) representing the well-known episode of the shepherd Jean-Baptiste Jupille struggling against a rabid dog. The shepherd was the second person ever to be vaccinated against rabies. The crypt, modeled on a Byzantine mausoleum, was decorated in a symbolist style by noted French artists of the end of the 19th century. Each mosaic depicts one of Pasteur’s main accomplishments (rabies, silkworms, wine, veterinary vaccines). Louis Pasteur rests in the crypt located in the Institut Pasteur in Paris.
