Police-Tripping Sculptures
Tom Franzen's De Vaartkapoen Pokes Fun at Authority

By: Meghan Young (Superstar) Nov 30, 11

The De Vaartkapoen sculpture is a permanent piece of street art reminiscent of work done by the infamous Banksy. It features a comical situation in which a lowly person has decided to trip a policeman. Located in Molenbeek, the De Vaartkapoen sculpture represents the idea of overthrowing authority.

Created by talented and imaginative sculptor Tom Frantzen, who was born and bred in Brussels, the De Vaartkapoen sculpture was loosely inspired by the artwork of cartoonist Hergé, who is most famous for being the creator of Tintin. Although quite childlike, it holds a huge significance not only for this city, but for many societies around the world who have had to deal with power-hungry individuals and insubordinate rebels.
