About the work of art
Anuli Croon created a fabric consisting of groups of elements:
- Silhouettes of mythical animals and animals that depicting character traits of soldiers; black-tailed-godwit, sea hog, fox, owl, harrier, hare and sea otter.
- Various equipment; a submarine, amphibious vehicle, helicopter and armoured vehicle, placed in water, earth and air.
- Soldiers of different units, badges, clothing with ribbon motif and the Dutch lion shining on a blue scarf.
All these parts are interwoven in an irregular grid of dark and light squares.
The realization of the mural
Iwaarden has realized this work of art in close cooperation with Anuli. We have provided paint-technical advice and made a plan of action, adjusted to the location, the artwork and the surface. The artwork has been unraveled with military precision and numerous painting templates have been plotted, finished and applied to the concrete pillar. The artwork came to life piece by piece, in military colours. The result: a colourful artwork that breathes the core values of defense and the CMH.
