Façades of The Hague #12


Sculpture by André van Lier (1951), made in 1978 and placed in 1980 in the Florence Nightingalepark along Florence Nightingaleweg.

When I saw the sculpture in March this year a mother was helping her toddler climbing it.

When she saw me watching, she looked a bit ashamed and she said she wasn’t sure if it was a climbing frame for children or maybe a work of art.

There is an orange coloured graffiti on top of the work and it clearly needs some maintenance.
