De Jonggehuwden (The Newlyweds)
Free Art and architecture Contemporary Outdoor

Love, Liebe, amour, amore… we can never get enough of it! These frisky lovers in bronze are celebrating love with a dance step. Their kiss is hanging in the air. Since 1991, this creation by the Italian-Belgian artist couple Livia Canestraro and Stefaan Depuydt has been standing on the Burg Square, mere metres from the stately City Hall where couples in Bruges promise each other eternal faith. From that first furtive glance to being joined in matrimony. The Newlyweds see it all happen from their privileged position and the little frog at the base of the statue is taking it in at his leisure too. This is a nod to the name ‘Depuydt’, which resembles the West-Flemish word ‘puut’, meaning frog. Scour the base for the word ‘love’ in your language too – it's written on it in dozens of different languages.
