About This Piece

The statue is a depiction of the Eugene Field Children’s poem “Dutch Lullaby” and shows Wynken, Blynken and Nod rowing a wooden shoe through water. Wynken, the larger boy, is towards the front of the shoe in pajamas and is seated with a paddle in his hand. Blynken is a little girl standing behind Wynken in a night dress, her chubby arms clasped around his neck. Nod is a tiny baby seated in the rear of the boat (shoe) nodding sleepily as the waves lap softly against the boat. The entire sculpture is placed on a oval shaped cement base. The sculpture was renovated in 1993.
