Description

Monument made for the centenary of the death of the inventor of the saxophone, installed in 'the sax space' in Dinant. Dimensions: high 3 m, wide 6 m, material: blue stone and oxidized bronze. The monument conists of two 'rocks' rising out of the ground, one of which opens with allusions to the 'city history' of Dinant, and the other on the 'saxophone women', whose bodies suggest the form of the instrument.
