Henri Salingardes works as a hairdresser, first in his birthplace, then in Paris. In 1922 he purchases a small hotel in a village in the Tarn, in parallel buying and selling antiques. At the age of sixty-four, he starts making small relief medallions out of cement, imprinting the base with leaves. Dyeing the cement with powdered ocher of various hues, he sometimes ornaments these creations representing birds, human figures, and anthropomorphic forms with glass, paint, or fur.
