Concrete base for sculpture Melusine
Mélusine is a European mythical figure often described as a fairy with a woman’s body and a snake or fish tail that resembles a mermaid – and can also be found in modern form in video games.
stayconcrete developed a base made of high-performance concrete for a custom ceramic sculpture of the modern mélusine. The popular ceramic mélusine was placed at the end of a concrete bench on the banks of the Alzette River in Luxembourg. It is intended as an invitation to walkers to take a seat next to Mélusine, to join her in contemplating the landscape and resting on the riverbank.
The base and figure were cast, machined and installed as a commissioned work in the stayconcrete workshops. Exactly according to the ideas of the client.
