The Hand of Oterdum

Last Sunday I told you about the history of the small village of Oterdum and its cemetery on the dike near Delfzijl, in the north east of the province of Groningen. This monument, also at the cemetery, marks the exact location of where the church once was.
The `Hand of Oterdum´ was created by M. Meesters. After the original hand, made of bronze, was stolen in 2011 a new hand of synthetic material was made to replace it.

6 opmerkingen:

  1. A bit foreboding in black and white. I imagine it would feel quite different on a sunny day.

  2. Who in the world would steal a bronze sculpture of that size?

  3. Heb het gevoel dat Oterdum veel meer aandacht krijgt en heeft dan veel andere kleine plaatsjes in Nederland maar ook dit is weer een juweeltje.

  4. Wat een mooi foto is dit! Tegenwoordig is niets meer veilig voor de graaiers in de openbare ruimte.

  5. Who can steal such a big hand, I wonder...


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
