Men have always tried to discredit women's achievements throughout history, and this is one of my more favorite ridiculous examples. Men didn't believe she actually was a great warrior, simply because the statue's horse had both of its legs on the right side raised at...More

This bronze statue is located at a corner of a very busy sreet. You'll see this statue one way or another as it's quite big and on a high pedestal. It's the statue of the 2nd queen of the Netherlands.

The statue for King's great grandmother Wilhelmina was really the landmark around the square. The square was full of people, some having their cups of coffee while others just strolling around the canal or window shopping there.

Nice statue, but I wouldn't go out of my way to see it. That said there are not many bronze statues of successful women on horses. A credit to womenkind, however, just another bronze landmark to keep the pigeons happy.

Great looking sculpture remembering the King's great grandmother Wilhelmina. Difficult spot to get a good photo, roadwork in progress at the moment.
