SkyWatch Friday #5 : Congreskolom, Congress column (Brussel)

Flanders-inside-aug2008-Brussel-congreskolom-1

Op elke hoek van de Congreskolom (zuil ter herdenking van het Congres dat de grondwet ontwierp in 1830) staat een beeld dat een belangrijk principe van de Belgische grondwet voorstelt : de vrijheid van onderwijs, de vrijheid van eredienst, de vrijheid van vereniging en de vrijheid van drukpers. 

On each corner of the Congress column (pillar in commemoration of the Congress that designed the constitution in 1830) stands a statue that represents an important principle of the Belgian constitution : the freedom of education, the freedom of public worship, the freedom of association and the freedom of the press.

The first one reminds me of The Vatican...creating life, only this time it's Mother Nature. I don't think I have the words to say how much I like these. They're superlative.

prachtig Het voordeel van deze kwakkelzomer is dat er steeds prachtige lucht te zien is. Vooral het bovenste beeld vind ik heel geslaagd.

I love the gods sitting in state, one directing the clouds, the other observing the process. Bravo!

Hallo Hildegarde,
ja die Freiheit, Symbole können sie nicht schützen und gewähren. Der Himmel und die See sind ein Teil unserer Freiheit.
Eine gute Woche.
Grüsse Hartmut
