Swords of academicians

It is a tradition for the friends of a future member of the French Academy to unite as the “Committee of the Sword” in order to offer this person the symbolic Blade. Far from being a weapon, this sword is a work of art, a “manifesto” that symbolically describes the events, ambitions, loves, and principles that have constituted the journey of the person who attains the immortality of men.
