Statue missing!

 

After the succesful St Jozef health center we have continued working on the former hospital complex in Deventer, now a national monument, to transform its main building into the new heart of an elderly care facility. The main entrance of this building is marked by a beautiful bronze statue…. until a week ago. The statue is missing and we fear it has been taken to be melted an sold as ‘precious’ metal.

The statue was created by the Dutch artist Arie Teeuwisse for the St Jozef hospital. It represents St Joseph as the guardian of the Mother of God on her journey to Bethlehem.
