Dorre the baker represents a young, dynamic pre-war baker going to fetch the bread dough from his customers to put it in the oven. The statue shows that the baker's craft is fine to trade with a long tradition.
The bronze statue was made by Roland Rens at the request of the Association of Bakers and Pastry Cooks and the Friends of Baking and unveiled in 1979.
The statue is located in the city centre of Diestsestraat.
