The Postman who built a Palace made of Pebbles (25 Pics)

Ferdinand Cheval’s Ideal Palace (Palais idéal) stands as a testament that you can achieve anything with time, effort and passion. How else could a simple postman with no formal training, single-handedly build something to the admiration of Picasso, André Breton and André Malraux?
Please enjoy the gallery of photographs below along with a history behind the palace and Mr. Cheval. And if you’re ever in Hauterives, France, make sure to drop by the Ideal Palace!
