The Little Cricket,
Koog a/d Zaan, The Netherlands.
Mural, acrylic paint on wood, 8m. x 25m,
piece was commissioned by the 'The Little Cricket' creche in Koog a/d Zaan.
Patries van Elsen was chosen to produce this piece because of her pronounced use of form and colour.
The piece is situated next to a playground and opposite a car park on a housing estate.
The client specifically requested that lively colours and childrens drawings be used in the piece.
The piece consists of three crickets and the handprints of approximately 100 children,
which link the crickets and create an impression of undulating movement.
