Malaga, 7 september 2019

Saturday 7 september a sublime monument by Artist William Phlips was revealed (een bergbaken) for his friend Joris Ghekiere in the Alpujarras, the Spanish Sierra Nevada (powered by Cosco). Friends and family came together to walk to the statue in honor of Ghekiere. The Faro de Montaña para Joris Ghekiere or ‘la Brochetta’ is located in a breathtaking landscape and accesible for hikers. It consists of a bronze staff that piereces seven rocks. The middle one is also made of metal, the others are actual riverrocks. The location is symbolic; Ghekiere loved these mountains and often went hiking in the area.
