Façade of the former Industrieschool voor meisjes (Industrial School for Girls), built by Johannes van Nieukerken in 1889, Van Diemenstraat.
An extremely decorative façade in neo-renaissance style. Under the cornice are masks and girls heads.
On top is an owl and further on there are putti and more masks and heads.
Over the original entrance are coloured windows and on the left and right are girls with study materials in their arms.
The wooden doors are in the original style.
This is Pallas Athena.
This goddess is decomposing or in extreme need of restoration.
The building still has a feminine function, it now serves women entrepreneurs.
Behind the building is a small courtyard along which some artists are living and Villa La Repubblica has its offices there too.
