Between Earth & Sky - The Diver of the Infinite
This statue was created by Idel Lanchelevici, a young Rumanian artist, for the The International Water Exhibition in Liθge, in 1939.
It was first realized in plaster and earth.
It gained so much curiosity and admiration at the Exhibition that the City of Liθge decided to buy a copy to be made in more resistant and lasting materials.
Due to the second world war the project was abandoned and the mould was lost.
Only in 1998 did the University of Liθge rediscovered that mould.
A more favourable climate lead to the recreation of the statue and its arc with the help of private and public funds.
The realization was decided in April 2000, and the oeuvre was inaugurated in June 2000. The chosen implantation favored a large visibility. The bow was made in painted steel, with a radius of 10 m and a weight of 3,5 tons; the diver measures 3,20 m, weighs 80 kgs and was built in hollow polyester on a metallic structure.

It has become one of the favourite of the local population and visitors alike.
