Monument for OPAM sculpture park, in cooperation with the poet jan Eijkelboom.
OPAM monument (planting the Beatrix Tree)

Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands sculpts herself and has a special interest in art and in particular for contemporary sculpture. Thanks to her this sculpture park found its way into the hearts of the local public. n 1995 she paid a official visit to the Drechtsteden area - the cities around the three river junction of the Oude Maas, Nieuwe Merwede and the Noord rivers. I had been having a hard time convincing the public and the city council of my hometown, Zwijndrecht that a sculpture park for this location would be a wonderful thing. So, being acquainted with the Queen, I contacted her and told her about my and my sculptors' association's initiative. In turn she asked the mayor, Dick Corporaal, whether during her visit to our town she could see the location of the proposed sculpture park. She also asked the mayor whether he had already thought about who would open the park. And so it happened.
