An all-time favourite: Object by Martha Pan. It floats and swivels, a bit duck-like.

Otterlo, Museum Kroller-Moller,

This page: The famous sculpture park in the open air

The Kroller Moller sculpture park is located immediately behind the main museum building, which contains mostly paintings, Van Gogh, Impressionists and others (click). Outside this museum is the famous Sculpture park are in the middle of a great National wildlife park, Hoge Veluwe.

Join me in a superb visit.

From 1960 the directors of the Kroller Moller Museum decided to start the biggest and best sculpture park in Europe – from scratch. Because of the enthused response by foremost sculptors, who were ready to part with their work at reduced cost, the plan succeeded. The result is one of the finest open air sculpture parks in the entire world (and I have seen most of these parks in the USA and in South Africa).

Jean Dubuffet, Enamel Garden, is usually the final point and highlight. Closed in rain, closed in winter.

The park takes a good hour walk, or even two hours if you want to go the easy way and in-depth. The extensive grounds are wonderful, with meandering paths and vistas opening up unexpectedly. An interplay between nature and art works.

Images Below: images of the artist: Ana Maria Tavares Secrets of the waters (for Mnemosyne).  Number: 5 parts, each 200 x 200 x 6 cm thickness, granite and stainless steel disc and letters.

I also have a minor interest in geopathy: geo means ‚earth‘ and pathy means ‚disease‘. I feel that the natural environment, mental and physical health of human beings are closely related and health will be influenced by trees, water and radiation. A subterranean water stream had been located by a divining medium (person). Interesting question arises… is dowsing a real craft or is a hoax? This movie about an Australian double blind test movie DISPROVES the existence of successfully dowsing with a divining rod, by putting the country’s best dowsers to the test: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7461912885649996034

Look Out! Too dangerous

Look Out! Too dangerous: a stairwell with a viewing platform. A kid tumbled down, causing it to be shut.
