From the old city gates of Dordrecht the river landscape still reminds us of the way it must have looked hundreds of years ago.

Papendrecht sculptures - sculpture in the city of Papendrecht.   

To the right of this picture the city of Papendrecht is slowly but surely closing down this historic Dutch landscape - letting uncivilized project developers build their money making high rise apartment buildings. On the other side of the river it was possible to put a (temporary?) halt to the salivating project developers, who see such beauty in terms of hard cash. This is one of the reasons why, already  in the early nineties, I chose this site to propose and build an international sculpture park. With support of Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands this growing sculpture park was realized .
