Trolls from the Provinces

Around and above the arcades of the Cinquantenaire in Brussels are distributed allegoric bronzes of the nine provinces of Belgium. The quality and the unity of scale of those sculptures make them an ideal material for my enterprise of deconstruction of figuration through symmertry.
See my previous pages Bronze Masks, Symiles, Disorders and Reflections on this theme.
Here are apparent two classes of troll portraits : some are simple masks, while the others, like the D&R images are more complex spaces, with a full-length figure surrounded by subordinate characters and accessories.
