The Lion's Mound (French: Butte du Lion, lit. "Lion's Hillock/Knoll"; Dutch: Leeuw van Waterloo, lit. "Lion of Waterloo") is a large conical artificial hill located in the municipality of Braine-l'Alleud, Belgium. King William I of the Netherlands ordered its construction in 1820, and it was completed in 1826. It commemorates the location on the battlefield of Waterloo where a musket ball hit the shoulder of William II of the Netherlands (the Prince of Orange) and knocked him from his horse during the battle. It is also a memorial of the Battle of Quatre Bras, which had been fought two days earlier, on 16 June 1815.

 

Next to that is the Panorama of the Battle of Waterloo (French: Panorama de la Bataille de Waterloo) is a rotunda in Belgium that houses a monumental panoramic painting of the Battle of Waterloo. The neoclassical building is located immediately to the north of the Lion Mound, on the battlefield of the Battle of Waterloo, in the Belgian municipality of Braine-l'Alleud, in the province of Walloon Brabant.

The building and the painting were protected as historical monuments in 1998. In 2008 the Belgian government proposed that the panorama should be included within a UNESCO World Heritage Site listing.

Don't know the name of the artist….

... sunset and a Belgian shepherd ......

""At the beginning of May 2012 Ericailcane did a set of three wonderful murals in Gent. The pieces were painted on the outer walls of the artists' workspace 'het vogelnest vzw'.

 

Ericailcane is an Italian virtuoso, who has created a unique universe since his childhood, where people can certainly learn something from the other living beings on our planet.

Beguinages were closed courtyards where widows and unmarried women led a religiously inspired but independent life. Self-rule occurred under the leadership of a ‘grand dame’ (grootjuffrouw).

The beguines supported themselves by weaving, making lace or embroidering. They took a vow of purity and obedience but not of poverty. There was great harmony between the spiritual and material life. They could leave the beguinage whenever they wished.

The Lier beguinage was created in 1258. It is a typical 13th century street beguinage comprising 11 alleys and 162 houses.

Various places in the beguinage remind us of author and painter Felix Timmermans, who found much of his inspiration here.

Agnes, the last beguine of Lier, died in 1994.

In 1998 the Lier beguinage, together with 12 other beguinages in Belgium, became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
