  • Statue located on the Grote Markt, it symbolizes the courage of Brabo, brave Roman who cut off the hand of the giant Antigonus to chop and throw her in the river Scheldt, making him suffer what he did to the boatmen who did not want to pay the tax. It is this legend that will be at the origin of the Flemish name of Antwerp (Antwerpen which means hand thrown). A hand which is also the symbol of the city. In any case this statue Fountain (not in function in July 2017) is very well done.
