Brussels, Belgium: The two lovers at the lake are actually the characters of a book, Thyl and Nele. This is a monument to Charles De Coster, considered the father of Belgian writing. The monument is the opera of sculptor Charles Samuel, a fan of De Coster. The monument has different characters from De Coster's book - a cat, a cooking pot, a spinning rod. Ignored during his life time, De Coster often sat near this lake.

ब्रस्लज़, बेलजियमः झील के किनारे बैठे दो प्रेमी, एक उपन्यास के पात्र हैं, थाइल व नेले. यह चार्ल्स दे कोस्टेर स्मारक है जिन्हें बेलजियन लेखन का पिता माना जाता है. इस स्मारक को दे कोस्टेर के प्रशँसक शिल्पकार चार्ल्स सेमूअल ने बनाया था और स्मारक में दे कोस्टेर के उपन्यासों के विभिन्न पात्र भी हैं - एक बिल्ली, आग पर रखा सूप का पतीला, सूत कातने वाली तकली. अपने जीवन काल में उपेक्षित दे कोस्टर, इसी झील के किनारे बैठते थे.

Il monumento è opera di Charles Samuel, un ammiratore di De Coster, e ha diversi personaggi del suo libro - un gatto, una pentola sul fuoco, un asta di filatura. Ignorato durante la sua vita, De Coster, si sedeva spesso vicino a questo lago.

    1. Absolutely Kalpana. It is on a very busy road, near a big bus station, but you don't see that in the pictures. The expressions on their faces are so tender.
      It was taken by an old Nikon D40 camera with a tamron zoom lens. A few months ago, that camera broke down and I was so sad! :)

    1. Thanks Vinay. I think that stone carving must be very hard work, probably the hardest among all artist-linked works! But the results can be absolutely wonderful as you have noted. :)

  4. Sir, It is the nature's law or you can say " Bidhi ki Bidambana " some of the great intellectuals are ignored at some stage of life or in whole life. Thamos Alwa Edison, Von Gagh etc are to name a few.

    1. Yes Shardu, unfortunately the world is like that, it only recognises the geniuses when they are no more!

      Thanks :)
