Frits Philips Statue, Eindhoven

Frits Philips Statue, Eindhoven

The Frits Philips Statue is located in the Market Place in the center of Eindhoven. It was discovered for the people in 1997. The sculptor who worked on one of the favourite local monuments was Kees Verkade. Frits Philips' family was offered five models of the potential sculptures to choose from and they thought the present one was the most decent. The statue is entirely made of bronze and it is about three feet tall. The statue represents the nephew of one of the Philips Company's initiators - Gerard Philips. After a while, Frits himself became president of the company. Frits Philips died at the age of one hundred, in 2005.
