When we were in Amsterdam last year we wandered into a shop called Smellik and Stokking. It was full of wonderful sculpture by a number of Dutch artists.
A piece that captivated us was a sculpture by Leon Veerman. It is called ‘the way we dance’. I took a picture of it at the time because we thought it was so special.
It is two Penguins dancing and you can spin them around on their feet so that they assume different poses.
Well we just dearly wanted it but it was much too expensive at the time so I have spent the last six months making savings from the housekeeping and we were finally able to buy it.
It is a delightful piece of work that makes us smile when we look at it.
