Sculpture: Missing children at Parc de Bruxelles

Jean-Michel Folon
"The Messenger"
To the missing children
"La Libre Belgique" 21 May 1997

Original inscription:

JEAN-MICHEL FOLON
« LE MESSAGER »
AUX ENFANTS DISPARUS
LA LIBRE BELGIQUE 21 MAI 1997

"La Libre Belgique" is a national newspaper. The sculpture is, appropriately, placed close to the children’s playground, which you can see in the background of the photograph. The text is given in a different language on each face of the plinth: French, Flemish, German and an Arabic script (that we are too ignorant to be able to name). See the "Subjects commemorated" for the background to this memorial.
