Lapwing in Sloten

'Kievit' shows a girl standing on the shoulders of a man. She holds a bird in her hand. Under the man's feet, a messy pile of buckets, jerry cans and sinks form the base of the fountain. These universal containers where water flows quietly in and out indicate that our society has abundant access to something not at all obvious elsewhere in the world: water - the source of all life. The bird hugging the girl is a lapwing, a species of bird threatened in Friesland.
