Orange Lady

Busy, busy, busy... The stewardess is unlike any other statue (or steward). Orange in appearance, this lady has a strange way of serving her guests, and though she appears slow in her movements she is always rapidly following her schedule. While overlooking the challenges she stays busy all the time, unless she is looking for something else. With this performance Godelieve was the great winner at World Statues 2009; she became the Dutch and the World Champion living statues

Jheronimus Bosch

Jheronimus Bosch ('s-Hertogenbosch, circa 1450 – augustus  1516), also called Hiëronymus or Jeroen, was a Dutch painter   of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. His real name was Jeroen Anthoniszoon van Aken. The artist's work is well-known for the use of fantastic imagery to illustrate moral and religious concepts and narratives. The name derives from his birthplace, 's- Hertogenbosch, which is commonly called "Den Bosch". In 1930 at the Bossche Market Square a statue of Jheronimus Bosch was placed. The statue is made in 1929 by the artist August Falise

Golden Stowaways

A stowaway is a person who secretly boards a vehicle, such as a ship, an aircraft, a train, cargo truck or bus, in order to travel without paying and without being detected. But how many are they here? Three, two or just one. Anyhow, there is a lot going on between those golden barrels.

Go on Parade

Dismissed! Drum Major ‘Go’ walked off from her marching band. With quit some ceremonial display she installs herself at her temporary post in order to conduct routine and special inspections. As ‘Control’ is her middle name. With a keen eye for detail, Go checks her temporary subjects and puts the situation to her hand instantly in a very charming way. Is everyone ready for this ceremonial with an appealing blink. Come a long with Go on Parade.

Erasmus

Desiderius Erasmus Roterodamus (sometimes known as Desiderius Erasmus of Rotterdam) (October 27, probably 1466 – July 12, 1536) was a Dutch humanist and theologian. Erasmus was a classical scholar who wrote in a "pure" Latin style. Although he remained a Roman Catholic throughout his lifetime, he was critical of what he considered the excesses of the Roman Catholic Church.

Living statues

  These living statues, dressed in perfectly designed costumes with several themes, bring spontaneous and surprising entertainment. The audience is captivated by the stunningly real appearance and the movements controlled to perfection. Thematic and made-to-measure adjustments are possible. The renewing and challenging way of creating standstill acts and living statues were the kick off for TukkersConnexion. Roy won the Dutch Championship for living statues successively in 1999, 2000 and 2001, each year with a different style. In 2009 Godelieve wins the Dutch Championship but also the title of World Champion with her performance as a stewardess, the orange one… Our specialty is to bring alive a lifeless scene. It’s a mix of art, theatrical strength and the power of a non spoken performance. For us it is still a challenge to put the performance of a living statue up to a higher level, copy a real statue in the smallest details or integrate a standstill act into concepts.   Prices: 1999 Dutch Champion Living Statues 'Ons-Uit-Een' 2000 Dutch Champion Meister Living Statues 'Tres Alegres' 2001 Dutch Champion & audience award Living Statues 'Turn Up' 2009 Wold Champion & Dutch Champion Living Statues 'Orange Lady' 2011 Audience award World Statues 'The Couch' 2012 Dutch Champion Living Statues 'Nostalgie am Eis' 2012 Sonderpreis Koblenz 'Die Couch'

The Couch

Let's introduce... This couch has the looks! It frowns, signs, whispers and keeps an eye on you. Left and right feel easily at home. They sure can speak words of wisdom, but a light informal conversation for social occasions can be arranged too. It is real French Baroque and that's no joke!

The Fool

It's a natural fool, so don't fool him! You can call him a clown, a jester or a joker but he is always in charge. Watching over the crowd from his little pilar trying to catch your dreams.

Torso

A bust is a sculpture depicting a person's chest, shoulders, and head, usually supported by a stand. These three- dimensional forms recreate the likeness of an individual. These may be of any suitable material (usually marble or other durable material). Mostly, historical figures are perpetuated this way. This torso is an exact copy of the famous Dutch doctor Mezger.

Saint Barbara

The holy Barbara. Saint Barbara is venerated by Catholics who face the danger of sudden and violent death at work. She is invoked against thunder and lightning and all accidents arising from explosions of gunpowder. She became the patron saint of artillerymen, armourers, military engineers, gunsmiths, and anyone else who worked with cannon and explosives. Following the widespread adoption of gunpowder in mining in the 1600s, she was adopted as the patron of miners, tunnellers and other underground workers. As the geology and mine engineering developed in association with mining, she became patron of these professions.

Peter Stuyvesant

Peter Stuyvesant (1610[1]–1672) served as the last Dutch director-general of the colony of New Netherland from 1647 until it was ceded provisionally to the English in 1664, after which it was renamed New York. He was a major figure in the early history of New York City and his name has been given to various landmarks and points of interest throughout the city.

Garden sculpture

Ice Skating

no langer available

This friendly couple skater has just escaped from a winterly drawing and is having the time of their life.  The weather is fine for a nice trip on frozen waters. Anton Franciscus Pieck (Den Helder, Netherlands, April 19th 1895 - Overveen, Netherlands November 25th 1987) was a Dutch painter, artist and graphic artist. Dutch Champion 2012!

Son of Man

Ghislain Magritte (21 November 1898 – 15 August 1967) was a Belgian surrealist artist. He became well known for a number of witty and thought-provoking images that fall under the umbrella of surrealism. His work challenges observers' preconditioned perceptions of reality. One of his well known works is 'The Son of Man'.  Two man avialable.
Son of Man Turn Up The wheels are turning, the chains are creaking; energy is going to be translated into toil. In an heroic way they actors face the risks of every single moment, balancing on the boarders of their capacity. Never ending cooperation, production and inspection, dynamics in every detail. Fighting against the elements, in extreme concentration striving for the required perfection.   TURN UP  is a non spoken improvisation of various scenes, movements and effects. In a setting of tackles, winches, wheels, cables and pulleys the hard working men are busy doing their jobs. They symbolise the labour, energetic power, joy and cooperation. Because of the simplicity of its construction, its colours and natural look, Turn Up will be associated with the good old days. info sheet info sheet video video info sheet info sheet video video info sheet info sheet info sheet info sheet video video info sheet info sheet video video
