Gilded Guilds

Gilded Guilds

In Brussels, Belgium.

Statues atop the classically ornate old guild halls surrounding the Grand Place in Brussels. The grandeur of the statue of the guy on the horse kind of overplays the fact that the building upon which it is perched is the Maison des Brasseurs, housing the Brewers Guild since the 16th century. I guess beer is pretty important here.
