Sculpture

Description

This sculpture called “Les Couteaux” (the knives) by Guy Deltour, a local artist, is here to remind us that Houyet used to be home to cutlery works of great renown. The factory produced hand–carved knives with a horn hilt for hunting, woodwork, etc. It is thought that the factory was started on request of King Leopold I circa 1850-1851.
