The tree and its birds were installed at Leeuwenlaan (‘s-Graveland) near the bridge with Kortenhoef (Zuidereind/Noordereind)
The meaning of the birds and the chosen design is explained on a nearby standing plate, which was put into the ground by elderman Theo Reijn of the Wijdemeren Municipality, supervised by myself.
3-D painting “Tokyo by night” completed for the serie Sky lines by night.
The serie now consists of Manhattan, Paris, Hong Kong and Tokyo. The fascinating sky line of Marina Bay in Singapore and the Thames at Waterloo Bridge London are in the making. Ideas about Shanghai and Amsterdam are other towns where I left my footsteps are emerging.
Impression London Waterloo Bridge and the City at dawn
Another “Sanglier” sculpture was created in steel plate as a present for the new house and garden of my friends Huib & Marina in Amsterdam. They loved the ‘sanglier’ that was sold at the exposition ‘Op Jacht’. So what do you do for friends who just moved to their new house with a garden in Amsterdam? You add to their happiness.
Creation of a couple of chicken in steel
As a side effect of the new sanglier and the end of the life cycle of our Barneveldse Kriel chickens, my dear wife expressed the wish to welcome a couple of chickens in steel plate for our garden. So here’s the first chick.
Work in progress
The scuplture ‘Overbruggen’ for Kortenhoef and ’s -Gravenland is about ready to be created. All elements are waiting on the shelf for the final go ahead from the municipality. The birds in the tree will symbolize the bridge between the different cultures and nature of the two traditional villages.
