At Zuliani's, no not an Italian restaurant just around the corner, but the art and terrazzo makers who are renovating the sculpture 'Ode aan Marten Toonder' (Ode to Marten Toonder).
I made this sculpture with my art collective De Artoonisten (Hans van Bentem, Luuk Bode and DJ Chantelle aka Boris van Berkum and myself) in 2002.
Because of rigorous adjustments to the square, like the recently built imposing 'Markthal', the city had to move the sculpture a few meters from the original location.
And with relocating the sculpture it had to be stored away for one year.
Luuk Bode and I are actually helping Zuliani a bit with adding some new paint on the top part of the sculpture, and that starts with removing the old paint.
The sculpture will be placed at the new location in Februari 2016.
