Satan’s Stereographs: Les Diableries, c.

‘What the demolition workers discovered that day was a series of photographs known as Les Diableries, The Diabolical.  Each scene in the series was composed of an elaborate diorama sculpted out of plaster and clay and embellished with miniature props.  Created in Paris during the 1860s, the series was printed in the form of stereoscopic transparencies.’
