Art Appreciation

On Saturday morning, we woke up to yet another day of rain (after a whole week of it!), so we headed to Rotterdam to visit the museum there, a new stop for us. Thankfully, it wasn't raining in Rotterdam. It was actually sunny, which turned out to be a double blessing because the museum wasn't open. We arrived at 9:30 to find the opening time of 11. Sigh. Turns out there was a lovely garden in the MuseumPark behind it, so we wandered there for a while before visiting the small "Natural History Museum" (in quotes because it was more someone's taxidermy collection than anything). In the garden, we came across this sculpture:
