"The story of the tower in art" Doesburg Off The Beaten Path Tip by Pavlik_NL
Doesburg Off The Beaten Path: 7 reviews and 7 photos
Behind the church there is a artwork, a statue with a wonderful sympolic meaning. It is a glass construction, simulating births appearing and flying upwards. At the end of the worldwar, the fighting to liberate Doesburg was quite fierce. In this battle the tower of the church got so badly damaged that it started crumbling and fell ... the statue has a text, saying "toen de klok zweeg, verschenen de vogels van vrijheid", which means as much as: "when the clock became silent, the birds of freedom appeared". Beautiful, isn't it?
