MONUMENTS AND GRAVESTONES
The circular text was conceived in cooperation with the poet Jan Eijkelboom. It reads "Ter gelegenheid van de opening van het Beeldenpark Drechtoevers op 5 juni 1996 heeft Hare Majesteit de Koningin deze boom geplant" - (translated) "on the occasion of the opening of the Drecht-Banks Sculpture Park on June 5 1996 Her Majesty the Queen planted this tree". The poet's original words were "Koningin Beatrix" instead of "Hare Majesteit de Koningin". The queen herself had agreed to this shorter, friendlier version but the protocol obliged me to use the official title.
