a dog's pipe dream

thanks wikimedia commons user brbbl.  CC BY-SA 3.0

In Frederick Hendrikplantsoen, a park in the west side of Amsterdam, this stalwart dog-creature stands:  Dutch sculptor Cephas Stauthamer's 1965 Droombeeld ("Pipe Dream").  Stauthamer (1899-1983) worked in both naturalistic and abstract styles, as you can see in this webpage on his "Humans and Animals in Stone and Bronze."
