Places of interest

Internationally renowned artist Job Smeets was born in Weert. He created a handmade bronze sculpture as a tribute to Weert's industrial history. Four bronze figures with historical significance carry a crane cabin on their shoulders.

The four bronze typical Weerter figures are: Philips of Montmorency, a labourer, a monk and Prince Carnival. 

Work of art for Weert

The former loading and unloading crane of the Landbouwbelang factory is industrial heritage. It is converted as a artwork by Job Smeets. This work of art is placed near its original location on the Werthaboulevard with the aim of keeping alive the memory of Weert's industrial past and the Landbouwbelang.

Design

In the design, the heart of the loading and unloading crane is used: the control cabin; it is connected to the machine and is the only one operated by humans. The cabin is upgraded by executing parts in polished bronze.

In addition to the reference to the past, the design pays attention to the new working people, who, like the workers in the past, are working on the future. As a result, the blooming roses are a distinctive element in. The clock on the booth that moves forward and backward refers to the past and present. The pedestal is part of the sculpture and is also manufactured in the studio (aluminium).  The idea behind the artwork has many layers and certainly humour. The artwork prompts thought and discussion; that makes it interesting.
