The Animal Tree

2013

The Animal Tree on ‘The Hogenhof’ in Nijkerk was commissioned by the municipality of Nijkerk. It is made in a dead Chestnut Tree. Because of the new residential area and a children’s playground, the municipality thought it was a good idea to do something with art in the public space. The question therefore arises to make something realistic so that the children could see what was being made in there playground. The question I asked the children was what they would like to see …….. ANIMALS! Okay, …. but what kind of animals would you guys want to see? A MONKEY, A KOALA, A GIRAFFE, AN EAGLE AND A SNAKE!
