Historical Sculptures in Belgium Mysteriously Grow Flower Beards

January 06, 2017

Artist Geoffroy Mottart has been finding mostly forgotten or ignored historic busts throughout Belgium and giving them a colorful floral makeover. "This idea came to me, because I realized that most people pass by these statues without paying attention," said the artist.

"Apart from many of these works, they are testimonies of the past. I believe they are worth seeing, they are part of our cultural heritage! This led me to take an interest in other projects, because my work allows us to showcase old buildings such as the Friche exhibition as galleries, halls, parks, see pieces of life. By putting a floral note in places or on objects, the spectators pay attention to my work, they rediscover what surrounds it."
