There is a huge art object, a 26-meter high sculpture of a seated man on one of the Dutch dams, installed by artist Antony Gormley. In some way, it is intended to symbolize the rising oceans.

The weight of the statue is 60 tons, it consists of 2000 parts fastened with 5400 bolts. It is clear that such a large structure was first created in digital form. Then, in the UK, workers build the legs to see if the statue would be possible. After that, all the details were sent to the Netherlands.

From far away the shape of a person is clearly visible, but when you approach the statue the nature of the object becomes more abstract, until it turns into a set of tubes.
