Sharp dressed pigeon
For this mural, of a pigeon dressed in traditional Dutch attire, AlfAlfA took inspiration from the many pigeon breeders that once lived around Dijklaan.
At least 14 pigeon breeders supposedly lived in the area, among which also the former Dutch pigeon sport champion.
Still very popular
The Dijklaan is home to one of the most famous pigeon doctors in the world. Pigeon sports are still very popular, almost 17.000 still hold pigeons for sport of recreation.
