Louis De Cordier

For Beaufort03 the Belgian artist Louis De Cordier made a large metal geometric sculpture, Metatron. The specific shape of the sculpture, with which De Cordier refers to the mysterious shapes painted by renaissance artists like Leonardo Da Vinci, Albrecht Dürer or Pierro della Francesco, is striking. These mysterious shapes are related to the ‘the golden section’, representing the perfect relation. But De Cordier still added an extra dimension to his work: Metatron symbolises the messenger of our intellectual existence. The Province of West Flanders purchased this work of art and installed it in the provincial country park Raversijde in Mariakerke.
