The Valparaiso Cultural Park in Chile is home to the latest Cosmogolem statue by Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen. From India to Chile, from Tanzania to Belgium, the four-meter high CosmoGolem appears in more than 30 countries on many continents. Sometimes the wooden giant travels, sometimes he is constructed on the spot. He has been on the move since 1986. Every time, children help to build the sculpture. The location in Valparaiso, a former prison, is perfect. Vanmechelen: “The Cosmogolem’s open head represents an open mind reminding us that thoughts should move freely. The CosmoGolem encourages others to dream and develop their own aspirations; a symbol of hope and evolution of great things to come.”
