LOST TOWER 2
1992
STOLEN FROM HEVESKES, HOLLAND
2,40 METER HIGH
RED COPPER

This is the second sculpture, Lost Tower 2, is also placed on a graveyard, but this one is next to the ruins of a church that stood in the centre of a village that disappeared because of an industrial harbour zone. The former villagers asked Hans Mes to create a sculpture which will also memorize this village and cherish their feelings. The sculpture has two sprouts as the symbol of growth and the top of the church tower to memorize the highest point for recognition when approaching the old village of Heveskes, which was circular built on a high spot near the coast. In a poem about this sculpture Hans Mes wrote:

LOST TOWER

Constructing a future perspective

The horizon lost a tower

Something remained visible:

Growth eternally replaces

The temporary.
