Jacquou le Croquant n’est pas seulement le personnage principal du roman èponyme d’Eugene Le Roy (1836-1907), Ecrivain régional péridourdin ayant vècu quelques annees à la Perception de Domme. Jacquou c’est le Petit Chose des années sombres de la Restauration en Périgord, David en lutte contre tous les Goliath de l’oppression et de la reaction, bataillant contre les puissants du jour, mérite contre naissance. Des Croquats, il y en a toujours eu en Périgord, terre radicale s’il en est. En ce sens, Jacquou le Croquant est un mythe Republican, un mythe de notre temps. Comme l’avait montré le lumineux téléfilm en noir et blanc de Stellio Lorenxi, resté dans toutes les mémoiries... Cette Oeuvre est taillée directement dans un seul block de pierre de plusieurs tonnes par le sculpteur Dommois Mic Bertincourt

Of the Croquats, they have always been in Périgord, a radical land if any. In this sense, the Jacquou le Croguant Republican is a myth, a myth of our time. It was shown in the movie luminous black and white by Stellio Lorenxi, it remains in all the memories ... The work is carved directly into a single block of stone of several tons by the Dommois sculptor Mic Bertincourt
