Drakenstier

‘Drakenstier’ (dragon bull) was commissioned for the Municipality of Amersfoort. The artwork was used in 2023 and 2024 for the city’s New Year’s show in which the story of the dragon and the bull is told and depicted.

In this work of art the dragon part is based on the story of Saint George and the dragon. Saint George is the patron saint of the city. The bull part is based on the Amersfoort artwork ‘De Stier’ by Thijs Trompert and Marisja Smit. In the new legend of the city, these two figures merge into one impressive totem animal that protects the city.

The artwork is owned by the city of Amersfoort and is exhibited throughout the year in restaurant ‘Het Lokaal’.
