What is claimed by the artist to be the world's biggest sculpture has been erected in the southern Belgium town of Lavaux-Sainte-Anne.
The 60-metre tall semi-circle of steel, "L'arc Majeur", which looks like an incomplete ring, was designed by 78 year old French conceptual artist Bernar Venet.
“Today we are installing, what everybody agrees to say, the biggest sculpture in the world,” said Venet.
“But I hope the artistic meaning of this arch will be more important than its size.”
The sculpture is made from 200 tonnes of steel and was set in 2,800 tonnes of concrete. The artist is expecting different reactions to the piece from the public, depending on if they're knowledgeable "about contemporary art or not".
