The Notre Dame cathedral in Paris made headlines after the iconic monument went up in flames last Monday.
The cause of the fire, according to the Paris fire brigade, is affiliated with recent restoration work for the building. In light of the tragedy, French president Emmanuel Macron has expressed that his thoughts are with “all Catholics and French people.”
Members of the media, artistes, and creatives have also taken to social media to pay tribute to the long-admired landmark.
Singer Dua Lipa writes that she was heartbroken to see “history collapsing” right before her eyes, while Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus comments that he is, “sending love to Paris.”
Creatives have shared their artworks on Twitter, with a striking piece by artist Cristina Correa Freile going viral. The illustration, which depicts ‘Quasimodo’ from Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame hugging the building, has fetched over 100,000 likes on Instagram since time of writing.
