Pier Pander Temple

This is the Pier Pander Temple in the Leeuwarden city park Prinsentuin. The building is part of the Pier Pander Museum. Jacobs Pier Pander (1864-1919) was a Dutch sculptor and designer of medals. He was the son of a poor Friesian boatman. At young age, his talent for woodcarving was recognised, and he studied at an art school in Amsterdam and later in Paris.
