Around 1514 this place was a graveyard for people that died from the plague and after that the graveyard was used to bury the the poor, children, soldiers and suicides.
The children dancing around the rat, the spreader of the plague is a link to the children song ‘Ring around the Rosie’ which refers to the black sores that would appear on your body as part of the plague. The artists also added elements that refer to the city Breda.
Artist Rutger Termohlen (NL) depicts people, animals and a combination of both. His work is dynamic and with rich contrasts in colour and theme: from love to death, from light to dark. Collin van der Sluijs (NL) added dreamy details and Super A (NL) mostly made both animal and human portraits.
