Ligier Richier (lēzhyā´ rēshyā´), c.1500–c.1567, French sculptor. Most of his work is in the churches of his native Lorraine. The most famous is The Entombment, consisting of 13 life-size figures in marble in the Church of St. Étienne, Saint-Mihiel. The group is dramatically conceived and beautifully executed.
