A piece of Kerikeri in the Netherlands

On Sunday I visited the Kroller-Muller Museum in the Hoge Veluwe National Park near Arnhem with (pictured from left) Ted, Angela, Sophie and Philipp. The Kroller-Muller Museum boasts the world's second biggest collection of Van Gogh paintings (after the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam); it also has a vast sculpture garden where, after some searching, we found a work called Echo van de Veluwe. If Northland readers recognise the sculpture's style that's because it's by Kerikeri artist Chris Booth. His New Zealand works include the Rainbow Warrior Memorial at Matauri Bay, Te Whiringa o Manoko on Kerikeri Domain, and (with Te Warahi Hetaraka) Waka and Wave in Whangarei.
