This majestic monument to honour the van Eyck brothers is a very large bronze half circle shaped piece of artwork and just a five minute walk past the Belfort. Not to be missed!

One of the most astonishing statue I ever saw. In front of the best church of the city, this statue is at the same time very huge and beautiful, telling a very interesting history. So take your time to explore.
