Long Description:
"A Port Haliguen, le vieux port breton de Quiberon

Port Haliguen, le petit port traditionnel, plus que centenaire de Quiberon avait besoin d'être réveillé de son train-train habituel. Il lui fallait un noveau point d'intérêt.

J'ai créé deux sculptures grandeur nature qui ont été placée de chaque côté de l'entrée du vieux port.
Une jeune et jolie ondine qui semble prête à plonger dans la mer du haut du môle , et, lui faisant face, à l'extrémité de l'autre quai, un vieux pêcheur, assis sur un casier à homards, lève la main pour se protèger les yeux du soleil et mieux regarder l'ondine. Les deux figures ont eu un grand succès auprès de la population et sont devenues une des attractions de Port Haliguen ainsi qu'un but de promenade. Les touristes et les curistes rendent visite aux sculptures et se font photographier près d'elles." Karsten Klingbeil website est fermé : karstenklingbeil.com

(EN) "In Port Haliguen, the old breton harbour of Quiberon / France

Port Haliguen, the small traditional, more than hundred years old harbour of Quiberon needed to be woken from its sleep. He needed a new center of interest.

I created two sculptures that were placed on each side of the old harbour entrance..
A young and pretty water sprite who seems to be ready to dive into the sea from the top of the stony quay, and, facing her, at the end of the other pier, sitting on a lobster pot, protecting his eyes from the sun with his hand, an old fisherman who looks at her with nostalgy

Those two works had a great succes among the population and became one of the most popular attractions of Port Haliguen. tourists like to have a walk and pay them a visit, and have pictures taken leaning on them..

They even take pictures of children sitting on the fisherman's lap. The two statues became the symbol of the harbour, the old one and the new one, its old activity - , fishing and the new one - tourism..." Karsten Klingbeil website is close : karstenklingbeil.com
