Artist duo Adelheid & Huub Kortekaas – Engel 1970
This blue angel is on display in the ArtZuid route. The sculpture reminds me of the following:
If you have lost a loved one, you may search for answers to life’s questions while trying to understand those. In that endeavor, you may come across experiences and realizations that may be inexplicable.
Theologist Christa Anbeek comments on this: “The feeling that some things seem to be beyond the rational and scientific fits into the idea that ‘there is more’”.
Where facts and existential proof have failed to be satisfactory answers, one may realize that there could be more between heaven and earth. During such moments there is no point in explaining what you seem to be feeling or experiencing, however strange. Depending on whether you have faith in something, symbols and spirituality can help you find answers to life’s questions.
“On the anniversary of my partner Paul’s death, I always receive a message. Every year without fail and in many different ways. This is a a comfort for me and I feel a connection in that moment.”
