Physical Description:

The artwork is situated on four concrete road blocks, in front of the canal bay and next to the cycling road. It depicts yellow sunflowers with green stems on the blue, green and rusty brown landcape.

Iconography:

The local pensioners who live in the building across from the 4 concrete blocks (functioning as a road blockers for the delivery vans) asked municipality to colour or decorate them. After a few discussions a solution was reached to illustrate a flower-bed with sunflowers, surrounded by the blues of the sky and reflecting on the Blue hotel across the water.
