The sculpture group “Forum of Human Rights” consisting of six glass portraits and two bronze sculptures by artist Margot Homan is a tribute to the universal declaration of human rights. This was established in 2018 on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of these rights on behalf of the Charlotte J. van der Seijs foundation (with supervisor Louis van Veldhoven).
The portraits, as shining examples in a wavy row, connected to a central image, depicted Human Rights as a metaphor. They are glass portrait menhirs, displayed as light catchers in the park, on a glass panel in pedestals of Cortenstaal that together form the first line of the Declaration of Human Rights, lit up in the evening. The spirit of these pioneers: literally and figuratively depicted.
All people are born free and equal in dignity and rights.
The bronze sculpture ‘Togetherness’ depicts humanity in equality. The one person who takes care of the other person.
The hope, the faith, the courage to be acting people.
The glass portraits were made in collaboration with Glasatelier Hagemeier in Tilburg and the bronze sculptures were cast by Fonderia Artistica Mariani Mariani in Pietrasanta (Italy)
