Moreover, they are the only two surviving artworks of Claus Sluter. Situated on the outskirts of Dijon, Champmol was a Carthusian monastery consisting of a church, a ducal oratory, ducal tombs and a courtyard bordered by small houses.The Well of Moses is a hexagonal well with columns elaborately decorated topped by angels and statues. These statues depict the Six Testament prophets: Moses, Isaiah, Daniel, Zechariah, Jeremiah and David.
