Against All Odds, for the sculpture garden…

Against All Odds, for the sculpture garden Ravesteijn a site specific work has been made. In memory of all the perished refugees at see a work about the dangerous journey. For almost all it is not a choice, but a way of survival. The work exists of a small boat with a proportional huge figurehead to enforce a save journey. No woodcarving but an original tree to hold on to life itself. The boat is connected with the tree by bandages, with fists as a variation on the Hamsa (protection) with Nazar (evil eye). The Hamsa are not suited for the weather influences and will drown.
