At last, an artwork you're allowed to touch. Moreover, since the gigantic bust also emits light, it's the perfect meeting spot in the evening. Artist Maxime Van Besien and Passion4Wood constructed a 5-meter-high bust of an artist, holding the iconic mask in hand. Both parts are separated so you can walk through, take photos, and interact with the artwork. A little extra note, the piece is entirely constructed from natural materials.
