Amsterdam to get statue to world's prostitutes.

\

Jan 16 12:32 PM US/Eastern


Amsterdam's red light district is reportedly to receive a bronze statue dedicated to prostitutes around the world.

According to the Dutch agency ANP, sculptress Els Rijerse made the statue at the request of a former prostitute Mariska Majoor, who a decade ago founded a centre on prostitution in the Dutch capital.


Majoor was quoted as saying by ANP that the statue would be a first of its kind and that it had received the blessing of the city authorities.

The statue represents a self-assured woman, her hands on her hips, looking sideways towards the sky, and standing on a doorstep, ANP said.

The precise place where the statue will be laid and its title have not yet been announced, it said.

No matter what they choose to call it, it will forever be referred to as the giant, metal whore.

They should cast it in brass rather than bronze.

I was thinking more along the lines of coin operated latex.

It's their money, why shouldn't they have a statue? Very straightforward and no hypocrisy window shopping on the grachts behind the Dam. An occupation/ business that predates money lending or religion.
I have stayed at De Rode Loeuw hotel since the late 60's, right at the Dam with hippies playing guitar in the middle of the square. Even though I have lived in L.A. for many years, I still know Amsterdam better.
Great city.

I for one liked it, TK.

Thanks for the memories...
