Flowers Added To Statues Throughout Belgium

Posted on January 10 2017


Artist Geoffroy Mottart decided to make some of the statues throughout Belgium a bit more colorful with flowers that he used to create hair and beards. His botanical additions can be found on the busts of Leopold II, Hermes, and Jean Melville to name a few. "This idea came to me because I realized that most people pass by these statues without paying attention to them," says Mottart. "By putting a floral note in places or on objects, spectators pay attention to my work and rediscover what surrounds it." Take a look at the revamped statues below and click here for more great art.
