Overview

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.

We drove ourselves from Amsterdam to Marken. It was cloudy with occasional drizzle, so there were very few people there. The fish and chips we bought in the maria were delicious.

The thing about commemorative artwork is that it is generally only of major interest to those with a direct connection to the event being commemorated. Thereafter, it’s artistic interest is a matter of personal taste. This is a nice enough piece.

Our guide mentioned this memorial as our boat started to move, so we could have a glimpse of it, its quite pretty and the view from the bench right there seems to be awesome.

If you arrive on the small ferry from Volendam you'll probably wonder what this is. Located at the harbour, "the Wave" commemorates the great flood that hit Marken exactly 100 years ago this year. It's worth taking a few minutes to have a closer look....More
