Galileo in the hospital




A lot of effort has been put into the renovation of the hospital known previously as St Elisabeth, now called Europe Hospital in the southern part of Brussels.
I thought the statue in the entrance hall looked like Kuifje/Tintin while in fact this sculpture "Galileo" by Kostis Georgiou, made in Athens in 2010, shows a scientist observing the sun.
The waiting areas in the various hallways still look pretty hospital-like to me though -- a red chair here and there does not do the trick.  What do you think?
