De Falcon Warrior

In the early morning of Thursday 22 August 2019 the bronze statue of the "Falcon Warrior" was officially revealed on the army base "Oranjekazerne" in Schaarsbergen in the company of representatives of the 11th Airborne Brigade.
This statue represents all man and women wearing the Red Beret. The ceremony was accompanied by a pipe-sergeant who played the official tune of the Brigade on the "moment supreme".


Jeanette Jansen and Caroline Hörchner worked together on the creation of the statue for several months.
The project needed special attention considering the details of the gear and uniform. The statue was going to wear the new to issue outfit that would become standard soon.
For this purpose a Red Beret from the Brigade was visiting several times with the new outfit and stood model for the two artists.


Caroline is busy with the modeling of the wax into a wax statue that later on will be transformed to bronze.


Specially skilled workers, from the bronze foundry Bogart in Druten, are preparing the wax statue for transport.

You can order your own unique statue

It is possible to request your own bronze statue. Think about a gift for a loved one or family member, a wedding anniversary, a commemorative statue of a deceased for instance for in the garden or on a grave (weather proof). Submitting a few photographs is sufficient. Posing is not necessary. It can stay a surprise.
