Long Description:
On Thursday, April 16, 2009, the artwork was unveiled.
The artwork is a design by artist Merijn Bolink (visit link) from Amsterdam.

The artwork is a sculpture, consisting of two bronze tree trunks that are fused together in such a way that they form a fragment of a DNA molecule. But some people see a wokkel in it, or the Jacob's ladder reaching for the sky. The skin of both "trunks" show two different types of tree bark. The artwork is placed right in front of the main entrance to the town hall, near a pool on the 'quay wall'. On the other side of the pool grows a living DNA tree. In other words: two living trees that must grow and become so intertwined that together they form a DNA structure. It remains to be seen whether this experiment will succeed.
