"William of Orange in death" Top 5 Page for this destination Royal tomb Tip by ATLC

Royal tomb, Delft: 5 reviews and 5 photos


The figure of William of Orange in white marble. I often find these kind of statues, sometimes just a wee bit larger than life very lifelike and thus impressive. As if they can stand up and talk at any time.
At the foot end there is a woman figure holding a trumpet for good fame and bad. She blows the trumpet for good fame of course. She's on tip toe which made her fall over once or twice and caused quite a bit of extra money to keep her standing!
