The wind vane with the golden eggs

Gertjan likes to dress up his technical drawings with interesting props, ranging from playing children to Kama Sutra CAD.

In the drawings of Barneveld Noord he introduced a bunch of chickens on the loose. Not an unlikely situation since Barneveld is the Egg Capital of the Netherlands. The rail track is even nick named Chicken Line.

One chick actually materialized: it turned into a wind vane. As a tribute to the particular trade of the city it is not the typical rooster but a gilded chicken.

The transparency of the pavilion might have a down side, it could potentially be harmful. People or birds might smash into the windows; hence the golden eggs. Our feathered friends will hopefully be particularly attentive…
