World’s biggest sculpture takes pride of place on Belgian highway

The world’s biggest sculpture, a half arc made from steel, is set to surprise drivers taking a scenic tour in the south of Belgium to France or Luxembourg.

Designed by French conceptual artist Bernar Venet and called “L’Arc Majeur,” the 60-metre tall sculpture was installed at Lavaux-Sainte-Anne, a small town along the busy 411 highway.

Venet said he hoped the public’s perception of the work would evolve so that its “artistic quality will be more important than the size of the work.”

Venet had initially wanted to install the sculpture, made from 200 tonnes of steel and set in 2,800 tonnes of concrete, in France but ran into various obstacles and eventually found a home for it in Belgium.
