As of the beginning of October this year a new sculpture is to be seen on Zaha Hadid square, in front of the Port Authority's headquarters. Entitled "the resurrection of Antigoon" it takes the form of a giant metal hand clutching one of the bollards in front of Port House.

Made by the Antwerp-based artist Bruno Kristo this piece of art represents the mythical giant Antigoon who according to legend used to terrorise the river Scheldt. Here he is seemingly trying to claw his way back onto land.  

The piece of art can be admired at the Port House, Zaha Hadidplein, Antwerp.
