A Horse Called Corona
All of a sudden the world faced Covid and sculptor Jos Dirix made the decision to work with wood during the lockdown. Surprising, considering Dirix’s impressive oeuvre in bronze. A Horse Called Corona grew to be a life-size sculpture, constructed from wood of a linden tree sawn into planks. A horse, paralysed by fear, its legs rigid and tense, its head and neck erect. Dirix's creative urge is also set in bronze. A Horse Called Corona has been cast in bronze in several sizes. Each of these bronze sculptures possess the specific characterizations of the wooden A Horse Called Corona.
Philips De Montmorency is at home in Weert
The bronze equestrian statue Philips de Montmorency is now prominent in the completely renovated city park. A monumental statue by sculptor Jos Dirix: 'I hope that this Weerter statue, the seventh life-size equestrian statue in the Netherlands, will be a vital source of inspiration well into the distant future!'
Philip of Montmorency finally comes home!
During the weekend of the opening of the renovated Castle Park Nyenborgh on Sunday 5 June, the festive unveiling of the equestrian statue by the Neerse sculptor Jos Dirix is planned. A historic procession will pass through Weert to the park beforehand. Sculptor Jos Dirix will be given the floor at 2 p.m. to explain his bronze creation. "The monumental bronze Graaf van Horne, who lived in Weert in the past, will be a meeting place for the future in this inspiring historic environment," says the Stichting Equestrian Statue Philips de Montmorency.
