Buddha belly, 2016
Bronze, 252 x 64 x 60 cm
Donated to the Daan Theeuwes Centre for Intensive Neurorehabilitation in 2019.
The Jatropha Podagrica, also known as the Buddha belly plant, gradually grows towards the light from its characteristically rounded stem.
Large bright green leaves, sometimes accompanied by an annual flower, triumphantly spring from the heart throughout its steady growth. The Buddha belly is therefore a fitting symbol for the vision that this exceptional clinic has about rehabilitation.
