Bartje The Dutch Farmer Boy
A Dutch Icon in a still-life in stone set by Mimi Berlin.
The boy in the middle is Bartje Bartels. He is a little farmer boy from Drenthe, a province of The Netherlands. He is brought up in a very poor family. Writer Anne de Vries came up with this caracter in 1935 and named his book after him. He wrote two booksabout Bartje. The quote “Ik bid niet veur brune bonen” (I don’t pray for brown beans) became well known in The Netherlands after Bartje became a tv series in 1972. The egg on the right is made out of concrete by Bloomingville. The Powercharger on the left is from Kreafunk. Just so you know! Have a nice day! xoxo
