Description

Bust of Jean Roggeman with the newspaper Le Travail in his hand.
On the back of the bust a cleaning instruction written:

Nettoyer ce marbre
avec du salle blanc lavé
de l'eau claire
un pinceau doux - rincer -

The bust is placed in 2015 at the reconstruction of the square. It looks as if it is a cast of an original marble bust (see the cleaning instruction on the back).
