Plaque - Yoka Van Den brink, Stage Two, Hindeloopen, 1994 Reg. No: SH 931260 2
- Painted plaque used by Yoka Van Den Brink, 1994, to show the stages of the Hindeloopen craft techniques. Hindeloopen craft techniques date back to the 16th century, to the port of Hindeloopen, in Friesland in the North of Holland where sailors developed a decorative tradition of handpainting domestic items to add colour to the dark houses through winter. Motifs include flowers, scrolls, buds, birds and sometimes bible scenes and landscapes.
- Wooden plaque painted dark green and the main areas of colour in the floral motif have been filled in. The word bathroom has been pencilled in.
