The three monumental Drie Wijsneuzen statues, with their monolithic silhouette and streamlined form, punctuate the coastline of De Panne as part of the Beaufort 2018 art event. The three parallelepipedal bases, each one is one metre wide and variable in height, are made of glass-fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) and dyed in the mass, and the three heads made of the same material are 1.7 metres high.
