Spring Mural

A mural on a so called "Pepper pot" in Amsterdam. The transformer steel columns appeared at the beginning of the twentieth century in several Dutch cities. The exterior of the colums is rented for advertisement and can so genererate some additional income for the city. They are mostly used for cultural anouncements. This image is anyway not cultural but a pretty spring anouncement I think.

  6. What a fun thing to do for the city to make a few extra bucks. The ads would certainly be seen with all these bicyclists around.

  7. Makes me think of the art back in the 60's - hippie art.

  11. It took a long time to put together pepper pot and the shape in the photo. We call them pepper shakers. Now it's a busy piece to get us going for spring.

  12. Dearest Marianne,
    Indeed, a pepper shaker it is! Love their shape and also their use.
    Your photo at least shows flowers and that's all we look for in the spring!
    Hugs,
