Plaster Model of a Male Bust by Aloïs De Beule, 1913


Plaster model of a male bust for the monumental bronze statue of 'Ros Beiaard' on the Paul de Smet de Naeyer square in Ghent by Aloïs De Beule for the occasion of the 1913 World Exhibition, Belgium, 1913. The entrance to the exhibition was quite impressive. Behind a domed building along Kortrijksesteenweg, a 300 meters long gallery of fame was built, surrounded by an arcade. The statue of 'Ros Beiaard en de Vier Heemskinderen', a Belgian folkloristic myth, stood in the middle of the ensemble. The statue is still standing in the middle of the park of what is now called the 'Miljoenenkwartier', as it was too heavy and deeply anchored to the ground to remove when the expo was being demolished. It is one of the last tangible reminders of the Ghent World Exhibition of 1913.
