This is a monument of a female statue I just discovered. Her name is Lammetje Groen or Green Little Lamb and her history is an interesting one.
People of the neighbourhood named Rivierenbuurt, The Hague, got involved to give an idea for some art in their area. Led by Cees de Brabander they choose for a young woman who was famous here in the 16th. century. In these old days the washerwomen were well-known who laid their white washing in the green meadows to dry and to bleech. The guys of the tow-boats approaching The Hague noticed the white laundry and named it after "green little lambs in the green meadows".
So the monument-statue, designed by Teun van Beijnum, became a young washerwoman named Lammetje Groen. At 20 October 1995 she was unveiled with style and honours. She sits there to welcome any passer by, and watch the changes of the neighbourhood for ages long. You can find her at the corner of the Ammunitiehof and the Lamgroen in the neighbourhood Rivierenbuurt.
