Feestelijke beeldenreeks

Artist Guillaume Bijl made Feestelijke beeldenreeks (Festive Images), a series of six statues in front of the three entrances to the RAI in Amsterdam. They make up a set of three couples in painted aluminium: a giant and giantess, illusionists and stilt walkers, until up to 7,5 meters in height. 

The 'Reuzen' or 'Giants of Flanders' form a true folkloric tradition in Belgium (first referenced in 1359). Every old city has its own giant or family of giants. They walk out on Feast Days only.
