Photographer's Note

"Mother and Child" sculpture, designed by British sculptor Henry Moore, is situated on the Place des Martyrs in the Gare Quarter of Luxembourg City. Across the Avenue de la Liberté, there are the headquarters of ArcelorMittal, the world's largest steel-manufacturer. You can see the headquarters in the background of the picture.

The building was built in 1922 and previously hosted the former Luxembourg’s mining company ARBED before its fusion with Usinor and Aceralia into Arcelor in 2001, and becoming a part of ArcelorMittal in 2006. It includes a bulky block with four wings and a large inner courtyard. Dominating the front side, the entrance portal is flanked by pillars with the gable figures of Victoria and Mercury, which both emphasize the connection between ex-ARBED and mining, steel processing and agriculture.
