CITIES - sculptures and land art
Lucien den Arend accentuated the circular form by painting white bands on the stems. He had memories of the regular trips accompanying his mother and father, who had a cigar store, to the southern provinces of the Netherlands to buy hand made cigars from small private factories. This was during the second half of the forties. In rural areas many of the streets were lined with trees, some still having white bands painted on them during the black-outs in the Second World War.
