Project Description

Theme Giant Tulip Bulb – Veldzicht

Streekmuseum Veldzicht is located in Noordwijk between the bulb fields. For that reason, the artist has chosen to paint tulips on the bulb. And then specifically the tulip, as it can be seen in the logo of the museum. On the Giant Tulip Bulb you will also find lavender, chives and some other herbs, this fits well with the beautiful place in the middle of the herb garden where it is placed. The black-headed cows stand between the dandelions and clover in the grass, they are painted nostalgically with horns, but also with a modern yellow ear tag. The numbers in the ear tags are the dates of completion of the painting and the date of the unveiling of the Giant Tulip Bulb.
