A love lock is something lovers attach to a fence or bridge to signify their love. Often they include thier names on the lock. Here in Antwerp, Belgium and installation with a large letter “A” provides the perfect location for this expression of love. I happened upon this great installation on a long walk through this wonderful city and wanted to capture this feeling.
This incredible artwork is on Minkelersstraat Street, an area of Antwerp, Belgium that is widly known for graffiti. This and many other amazing creations run behind a large bus depot in the most unassuming way possible, but it works, even though it’s super difficult to find. Different pieces line the wall all the way around the block.
This is the statue of Lange Wapper, a Flemish folkloric character. He’s located front of castle Het Steen in Antwerp. Per Wikipedia, Lange Wapper is known for using tricks to approach women to get their breast milk. He teases drunks, cheats whilst playing with children and laughs like the devil. He is also known to turn cabbage into children.
