CHRISTOPHORUS

CURRENT LOCATION: END OF THE DYNASTIELAAN, DE PANNE

Gerard Lentink

The Dutch artist Gerhard Lentink made this sculpture especially for Beaufort01: a monumental figure of a wading young man, five times lifesize, with a torso transformed into a seat. This sculpture should evoke the image of Saint Christopher or Christophorus, the saint of travellers. The jagged dune surface suggests the wild rocking motion of the sea. The wood has obtained a beautiful grey patina over the past years.
