Belgium Blackstone (lime)
Hand-chiseled inscription and images, gilded
To memorize the restauration and redevelopment of a historical building in the Amsterdam zoo (Artis) this plaquette was applied to the wall.
The building now houses small apes, sloths and a diversity of tropical birds. The particularity of the building is the fact that the animals are not caged but live freely together in one room. Visitors can walk through this room as if it were a tropical forest.
