It Might Hurt This Poor Man To Sit Down…

Regular readers will know that I have many collections of photographs on my blog Most of them are art works of some sort, statues, sculptures and the like but there are also street man hole covers, bicycles,various pieces of architectural detail and quirky stuff such as letter boxes, loos and strange wheeled vehicles. This post is rather tame when it comes to quirkyiness: it’s a statue of a man looking towards the harbour area. Located in the Scheveningen district that connects The Hague with the sea, it’s one of many “blink-and-you-miss-it” pieces that needs to be glimpsed on the pavement between parked cars.

It has not however escaped my eagle eye, and is now another checked off item on my long list of sculptural pieces in The Hague and surrounding areas.  No, I have no idea why the poor man appears to morph uncomfortably out of the post that supports him. He doesn’t exactly look comfortable does he? It kind of looks painful. But here he is… standing guard? waiting? My first feeling looking at is that I’d like to give the poor man a chair. Who knows what the artist was thinking…. I’m not entirely certain I want to know.
