This blog entry written by Jeanne Smith Murray for Homegig during our trip to The Netherlands in June 

"How To Meet An Angel" made by Russian artists Ilya and Emilia Kabakov.

I read about this controversial art installation some time back and was pleasantly surprised to find it in plain view from our airbnb roof deck. Installed atop the Mentrum Kliniek in Amsterdam, a mental health facility, the metal and fiberglass figure is equipped with a backpack and looks to the sky with arms wide open requesting help.

While the intention was meant to signify hope for those leaving the clinic  - hope that a guardian angel will assist them in their journey forward - some locals felt it appeared to be someone about to jump to end their life and didn't belong atop a psychiatric facility. Let's hope everyone with arms wide open receives their guardian angel to guide them to good health and happiness.
