Sculpture depicting two nymphs entwined symbolizing river and river Meuse and Sambre.

Annotation

Until 1980 the sculpture was placed near the Casino. It disappeared after a fire in the Casino. In 2001 it was found in private property and a long juridical procedure was necessary to get it back. In 2015 placed on a 'ship' in the lake in the Parc Louise-Marie.
