Hi Gardenerbill . I watched the program and saw the statue. The expert said he thought that it was by a Belgium sculptor but personally I would have said it would be by a French artiste,  giving the history of France and Serbia. however who ever made it , it was a memorial to a terrible journey.

Hi Sarge,

Yes I would tend to agree a French or even Italian sculpture would seem more likely than Belgian.
