On this Giant bulb you can see an anamorphosis flashback of the former harbour of Lisse.
Take position in the central axis of this painting and all the curved lines will fall into place and will give you an undistorted view.
The transport of the bulbs to the bulb auction of Lisse used to be over water. Both auction houses were after all situated at the canal, where the bulbs were traded. With the introduction of the truck, the harbour became unnecessary, so it was muted in 1963. What’s left now is an ugly parking place. Who knows this ‘retrospect’ will inspire the local government to build an underground parking lot there and restore the beautiful harbour of Lisse!
