In 1975, Raymond Leblanc (Les Editions du Lombard publishing company) and Guy Dessicy (Publiart) decided to give Hergé a surprise for the 30th anniversary of the Tintin magazine. To mark the occasion, they commissioned a standing statue of Tintin & Snowy from the sculptor Nat Neujean. Several copies were made of this statue: the first is currently in the Centre Culturel d’Uccle (Uccle Cultural Centre) after spending some time in Wolvendael Park. This copy had been officially unveiled on 29th September 1976.
