017 : Zittend Kind Statue
When I went to work or to my room from the center of Nijmegen by bike, I always passed this little stone boy. The boy, in a squatting pose, is staring in front of him and seems to be lost in deep thoughts. But you expect that he suddenly may look at you or even jump up. When I walked the Four Days Marches, I walked along this statue, and I regarded him as a silent, unmoved supporter of us walkers. This artwork was made in 1969 by the famous Nijmegen artist Ed van Teeseling. It was recently included in a fourteen kilometer long bicycle route along fifteen Van Teeseling’s art pieces.
