Pumping or drowning

A head with it lips just above water and a little man on it just looking over the surface. A statue from Henk Hofstra placed in 2010 near the dike at Lelystad. The capital of the newest polder and province in the Netherlands Flevoland. Its indeed necessary to keep our heads above the water and what you must do for it shows the nearby Museum New Land.
This is the billboard for the museum. It says pumping or drowning in dutch and if you look at the sky of the two photo's you must see some similarity. One for skywatch friday here.

  7. I thought it was you standing on the white head. I thought I would do the same for a photo op, hehehe... I have never seen that kind of monument before.

  10. Cool concept, great parallel between your shot and the exhibit poster. The sky, foreboding, is a perfect complement to the sculpture visually and thematically.
