Irish limestone 210 cm high

A beautiful new symposium was born this year in Baarlo, Limburg, in The Netherlands. It is quite unique that a symposium of such high quality can take place in The Netherlands. The country does not have a great tradition for stone sculpture. But the people of the town of Baarlo see it completely differently. As the town will celebrate its 800 years birthday in 2019 the idea to organise a symposium to bring 6 new sculptures into town was born.

Six international sculptors were selected and the sculptures were chosen by the population of Baarlo. With great enthusiasm 170 volunteers helped to make the symposium into an even greater success.

Now we just have to wait until the summer of 2019 to see the sculptures installed in Baarlo.
