Huge saxophone from Wallonia to New Orleans

Wallonia has donated a giant colourful saxophone to New Orleans to celebrate the jazz city’s 300th anniversary.

The instrument is three-metre-tall and has 50 kg. It has safely made its way across the Atlantic and will be unveiled on Bourbon Street this Thursday.

Namur artist Dimitri Perpete spent 60 hours of painting, and the saxophone gift got the emblems of Namur, Dinant, Wallonia and New Orleans and a picture of Adolphe Sax, the instrument’s inventor.

The artwork, which has been gifted to New Orleans by the Namur-Wallonie-Europe organisation, also celebrates 150 years of cooperation between Wallonia and Louisiana.
