Orange Lady

Busy, busy, busy... The stewardess is unlike any other statue (or steward). Orange in appearance, this lady has a strange way of serving her guests, and though she appears slow in her movements she is always rapidly following her schedule. While overlooking the challenges she stays busy all the time, unless she is looking for something else. With this performance Godelieve was the great winner at World Statues 2009; she became the Dutch and the World Champion living statues

Jheronimus Bosch

Jheronimus Bosch ('s-Hertogenbosch, circa 1450 – augustus  1516), also called Hiëronymus or Jeroen, was a Dutch painter   of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. His real name was Jeroen Anthoniszoon van Aken. The artist's work is well- known for the use of fantastic imagery to illustrate moral and religious concepts and narratives. The name derives from his birthplace, 's-Hertogenbosch, which is commonly called "Den Bosch". In 1930 at the Bossche Market Square a statue of Jheronimus Bosch was placed. The statue is made in 1929 by the artist August Falise

Saint Barbara

A holy statue, Saint Barbara.

Garden Sculpture

Ice Skating

This friendly couple skater has just escaped from a winterly drawing and is having the time of their life.  The weather is fine for a nice trip on frozen waters. Anton Franciscus Pieck (Den Helder, Netherlands, April 19th 1895 - Overveen, Netherlands November 25th 1987) was a Dutch painter, artist and graphic artist. Dutch Champion 2012!

Erasmus

Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus (sometimes known as Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam) (October 27, probably 1466 – July 12, 1536) was a Dutch humanist and theologian. Erasmus was a classical scholar who wrote in a "pure" Latin style. Although he remained a Roman Catholic throughout his lifetime, he was critical of what he considered the excesses of the Roman Catholic Church.

Living statues

  These living statues, dressed in perfectly designed costumes with several themes, bring spontaneous and surprising entertainment. The audience is captivated by the stunningly real appearance and the movements controlled to perfection. Thematic and made-to-measure adjustments are possible. The renewing and challenging way of creating standstill acts and living statues were the kick off for TukkersConnexion. Roy won the Dutch Championship for living statues successively in 1999, 2000 and 2001, each year with a different style. In 2009 Godelieve wins the Dutch Championship but also the title of World Champion with her performance as a stewardess, the orange one… Our specialty is to bring alive a lifeless scene. It’s a mix of art, theatrical strength and the power of a non spoken performance. For us it is still a challenge to put the performance of a living statue up to a higher level, copy a real statue in the smallest details or integrate a standstill act into concepts.   Prices: 1999 Dutch Champion Living Statues 'Ons-Uit-Een' 2000 Dutch Champion Meister Living Statues 'Tres Alegres' 2001 Dutch Champion & audience award Living Statues 'Turn Up' 2009 Wold Champion & Dutch Champion Living Statues 'Orange Lady' 2011 Audience award World Statues 'The Couch' 2012 Dutch Champion Living Statues 'Nostalgie am Eis' 2012 Sonderpreis Koblenz 'Die Couch'

The Couch

Let's introduce... This couch has the looks! It frowns, signs, whispers and keeps an eye on you. Left and right feel easily at home. They sure can speak words of wisdom, but a light informal conversation for social occasions can be arranged too. It is real French Baroque and that's no joke!

The Fool

It's a natural fool, so don't fool him! You can call him a clown, a jester or a joker but he is always in charge. Watching over the crowd from his little pilar trying to catch your dreams.    

Torso

A bust is a sculpture depicting a person's chest, shoulders, and head, usually supported by a stand. These three-dimensional forms recreate the likeness of an individual. These may be of any suitable material (usually marble or other durable material). Mostly, historical figures are perpetuated this way. This torso is an exact copy of the famous Dutch doctor Mezger.

JP Cuypers

Petrus Josephus Hubertus (Pierre) Cuypers (May 16, 1827, Roermond – March 3, 1921, Roermond) was a Dutch architect. His name is most frequently associated with the Amsterdam Central Station (1881- 1889) and the Rijksmuseum (1876- 1885), both in Amsterdam. More representative for his oeuvre, however, are a lot of churches, of which he built more than 100. Moreover, he restored a large number of monuments. The original statue is there at the Munstersquare in his city of birth Roermond.
