This is the monument to Belgium grateful to France which, from 1914 to 1918, helped the Belgian Government in exile and the refugees pushed by the German armies, who invaded Belgium. This monument, inaugurated in 1923, is the work of the Belgian sculptor, Isidore de rudder, with the architect René Foucart. He represents two women standing up, facing each other and holding hands. Just below, two children holding the Belgian flag in their hands symbolize the future of the two countries. The woman, who wears a bun and is clad in the antique robe, must be Queen Astrid of Belgium. The one who faces her, who is wearing a Phrygian bonnet, represents the French Republic. At the foot of the monument you can see the blazons of the Belgian cities. This work is touching, the sympathetic presence of the two women and children, quite rare in a work of commemoration of the great war. For me, this monument is imbued with some rather unusual sweetness.

Created and inaugurated in 1923, this work represents two women who face each other, with their arms stretched, holding their hands above the heads of two children. The one on the left represents France with its CAP Phrygien and the one on the right, Belgium with its Crown. This work is due to the architect Foucart and the Belgian sculptor Isidore de rudder, who died in his country in 1943. This is a tribute given to France for the war of 1914-18. A beautiful representation.
