Are there ideal palaces in the real world

There were eccentrics at all times. Without them, life would probably be boring. One of the most interesting eccentrics was born in France in 1936. His name was Ferdinand Sheval. As a teenager, he, having thrown school, moved to a small town and became a rural postman. For days, the guy could roam the hills alone, spreading letters and parcel. Here no one prevented Ferdinand mentally build locks and palaces with bizarre spiers, lancet arches, towers and carved gates. The area along which Cheval moved was once the bottom of the sea, and the whole valley was covered with stones polished by this sea. Once, having noticed, the postman stumbled on a stone and was about to spit it out with his foot, when suddenly the unusual lines of the coloring of the stone attracted his attention. And since 1879, Cheval began to build his perfect palace daily and even at night. He demolished the stones at the construction site at first in his pockets, then in the basket, and later used a car for this. It lasted about 20 years. Once Ferdinand decided that there were enough stones, and began to build his dreams. He carefully stacked the stone on the stone, raising the palace from them. In the basements of the palace, he built two crypts (for his wife and for himself), because he wanted to be buried under his creation. The palace was built of stones, wires and cement. Outside, the creation is decorated: a variety of sculptures, towers, fountains, and a large number of stairs. At the same time, the palace is small. Its height is only 10 meters. Transitions inside the building are decorated with a mosaic of shells, quotes from scripture and sayings of Cheval itself. In the last years of Ferdinand’s life, the palace built by the eccentric has become known. However, the old man dreamed that his perfect palace be not only a local attraction. Today it is a historical monument. The ideal palace became the ancestor of the new direction in art, known as the rude, or naive.
