For many, the construction of the European Union (to achieve economic stability, prosperity, peace, and raise living standards) was—and still is—a giant leap of faith. The sentiment can be felt in this photograph of a monumental figure that is ready to step forward in the air towards the Berlaymont building, headquarters of the European Commission in Brussels.
This monumental bronze statue (6m, 20ft) is by Hanneke Beaumont, a Dutch-born sculptor living in Belgium. Titled “Stepping Forward,” it was installed in 2007 in front of the Lex building in the European Quarter of Brussels.
