Jos Dirix is working on the sixth largest bronze equestrian statue of the Netherlands. A special assignment of the 'Equestrian Statue Philips de Montmorency Weert Foundation'.
Philips de Montmorency, Count of Horn, is commemorated all over Europe in 2018 and honoured in Weert with the celebration of the 'Horn Year'. The statue will be located in the renewed city park of Weert to keep the remembrance alive of the count who gave his life for the freedom of the Netherlands. With this Weert wants to create a future place that will provide pride and give the diverse community of Weert a place to meet.
