About the artwork

This sculpture by artist Tjalling Idenburg stands on the verge of Berberisweg like a cheerful beacon. In contrast to the sturdy material that Idenburg has used, the artwork has a cheerful color that contrasts with the green environment. The image has the shape of an obelisk, but with a wavy point. Occasionally the work suffers from the work of lawn mowers, who sometimes bump into it accidentally. The image is somewhat lost against the new construction of the nineties on the other side of the street. Originally, the work was located at a gym, but due to changes in the environment, the work no longer came into its own and the image was moved to its current location. On 24 May 1991 the work was again unveiled by Mrs. I. Koedam, then chairman of the municipality of Hillegersberg - Schiebroek.
