This is a great statue to a hero of the people of Ghent. It's bold, imposing and solid. It certainly projects a man who didn't look like someone who took any prisoners! It's another impressive addition to a beautiful city.

It's a bit off from the center, not much reason to wander in that direction. "Jacob van Artevelde managed to undo the boycott of English wool imports during the Hundred Years’ War between England and France in the 14th century"
