Through the fence

The newest tunnel only for bikers and pedestrians from the front to the other side of Central Station Amsterdam. Today it opens for the public but past week it was stil closed so this is through a fence. On the right and ceiling a 110m long mural after a sea view from the rotterdam tile artist Cornelis Bouwmeester (1652-1733). The 77730 hand painted tiles are made by craftsmen from Royal Tichelaar Makkum . Tomorrow I hope to walk there myself. One for monday murals here.

  5. The colour is gorgeous s.c. A little like the colours of the famous Delftware pottery. Maybe we can see more when you go for your walk.
