T-rex and other tin statues in Amsterdam

Filed under: Animals,Art by Branko Collin @ 4:14 pm

When I passed the zoo in Amsterdam yesterday, I spotted these metal statues on a grassy plot near the Nijlpaarden bicycle bridge. There are a T-rex, a centaur, a woman carrying a basket on her head, a monkey and others. I don’t think this is an official display, considering the unkept area it was in, but the people of the neighbourhood seemed to enjoy the little ad hoc park.

I haven’t been able to find out who made them, so any hints are appreciated.
