Astrid of Sweden
Stockholm 1905 - Küssnacht am Rigi 1935
Queen consort of the Belgians as the first wife of King Leopold III
Stone bench with a resin bust of Queen Astrid.
The original bronze bust was stolen in 2009. If I'm not mistaken, there is a bust, today in resin, of Queen Astrid in the Wauxhall Park in Mons.
The original bronze sculpture was stolen in 2009. In 2012 a copy was made after the bust erected by Maurage coal mines and lent for the occasion.
