Portrait of a dreamer

The beautiful work of art, made by Joseph Klibansky, is floating in Amsterdam. Without our constructor, Wilco de Groot, this would not have been possible.

The artwork 'self-portrait of a dreamer' was made by the Dutch artist Joseph Klibansky and can be admired on the Museumplein in Amsterdam. The astronaut balances on a chair, with a vase of flowers on his right foot.

Our constructor makes this possible

This 13-metre sculpture is situated above the pond and our designer Wilco de Groot ensured that the dreamer could actually float. After Lowlands, Zwolle and Venice, the statue is located in Amsterdam near the Rijksmuseum. The statue will be on display at one of the most touristic locations in our country until 28 August 2018.
