The Tower of Eben-Ezer (French: la Tour d'Eben-Ezer; named for אבן העזר, "the stone of help," mentioned in the Books of Samuel) is a seven-story flint stone tower, designed and constructed by Robert Garcet from 1948 through 1963, which is situated near Eben-Emael in the Jeker Valley of Liège, Belgium. The tower was built in accordance with Garcet's understandings of certain ancient measures, with the interior featuring various allusive murals and sculptures, the entire structure capped by four turrets with a stone statue atop, each representing the four living creatures described in Revelation 4:7 - the bull on the north-west turret; the man (as a sphinx) on the south-west; the lion on the south-east; and the eagle on the north-east.
