Guard it

It’s not a Transformer, also not a Terminator but a bit of both. It’s Guard in Rotterdam by the artist Hans van Bentem. Already since the year 2005 looking over the skatepark’s visitors. It’s based on the popular Gundam anime series.

With a length of 3.5 meters the ceramic Guards on a granite base is in Rotterdam since 2005. Another artwork in the area is colorful Anita by David Bade. The skaters from the skatepark next door supported the idea of such an artwork nearby. Resulting in the solid creation by Hans van Bentem. Here is the location!
