Feestaardvarken (Partyaardvark) by Florentijn Hofman

View all 1 Photos

You can’t miss the work of Florentijn Hofman. When he goes big, he really goes BIG!  Remember the giant Rubber Ducky in Hong Kong? Well, this time, the fantastically partied out and pooped Feestaardvarken (Partyaardvark) has landed for a cat nap at the Burgers’ Zoo in Arnhem, The Netherlands.  This sculpture encourages people to climb all over the 30 meters of creature.  It’s easy to find, surrounded by lumps of sand, right next to a parking rack for hundreds of bikes. The making of the fortress, or rather sculpture, is an involved process of welding and drawing, metal work and engineering. Many hands had a part in its final debut. Experience it all come together on this video.



Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
