The water sculpture “Waterhead” stands in a small lake in a new district of the city of Joure. A few graceful lines of solid steel form a large face in the open space of the landscape. The six-metre-high sculpture rises up from the water and the powerful lines of Corten steel, stand out against the cloudy sky . The flowing lines of the face transform halfway into three large jets of water that envelop the face like hair blowing in the wind. The watershed of the area is located at exactly the point where the solid lines of the face turn into water. The three water jets pump the large amount of water over the watershed that is needed to make water flow through this part of the city. Moving with the wind, the water jets animate the sculpture, bringing the portrait to life so that it can greet both the visitors and residents of the area.
