The artwork (The Wave) is also a sofa. To muse, to meet and to remember the power of water. ‘Collaboration’, ‘solidarity’ and ‘victory’ together with the sad side of the disaster; ‘the cry’, ‘despair’ but also ‘the helping hand’ are coming together in The Wave. This memorial has the shape of a boat, and thus symbolically incorporated the significance of Noah’s Ark. The monument is made by Dutch artist Linda Verkaaik.
