LE MONUMENT AUX MORTS (1914 - 1918)

Vintage plate 2018

This work by the Belgian sculptor Alfred Courtens (1889-1967) was inaugurated in 1923 by Queen Elizabeth. It symbolizes the Belgian resistance against the Imperial Eagle of the German Empire and the Kingdom of Prussia. It represents the Louviérois "Omer" Louis Lefèvre, shot in 1916 for espionage, at the proud and defiant port. A grieving woman holds his hand: symbol of a homeland scarred by a bloody conflict. At the extremities, two sculptures represent respectively a soldier going up to the assault and a civilian fleeing the fighting, haggard and carrying a bundle.
