Thursday Doors – June 21, 2018

These are the doors of the “De Zwarte Panter” (The Black Panther) art gallery in Antwerp, Belgium. The building, which was closed that day, was an old church converted into an art gallery. I loved the sculpted panther on top of the studded door, which is also quite pretty. Aside from the two studded doors, I also liked the pretty fountain next to the main door, and was amused by the banana painted on the brick wall. I thought it might be a Banksy, but a fellow blogger did some research and found out who did it. Check his comment below. And since this is about Antwerp, I’m throwing in an unrelated photo of a lovely sculpture found in a square in the city center. Those are characters from the novel “A Dog of Flanders”, by English author Marie Louise de la Ramée, about a Flemish boy named Nello and his dog Patrasche, which is set in Antwerp. Not a door, but isn’t it just lovely?

  1. So much to love about this. The doors are amazing and that street sculpture of the boy with the dog is one of the most original pieces of art that I’ve ever seen.
    Awesome post!

    • Thanks so much, Norm. Yes, that’s why I had to share that sculpture! Unfortunately I forgot to mention the story behind it and the sculptor’s name. I’ll either make a separate post about it or add it to this post.
