  • It is a statue of Spinoza. It is located next to the town hall. The canal is also near by and the scenery is very good. The hair is a very long statue.

  • It is a statue next to the town hall. At first I didn't know who it was, but there was a metal plate with instructions near the statue, and it was not until I realized it was Spinoza. Spinoza was born in the Netherlands.

  • Fabulous sculpture with good details.
  • The Spinoza Monument is located at Zwanenburgwal near City Hall. Here you find a sculpture by Nicolas Dings (2008) that is a nice depiction of the philosopher and ancestor of modern philosophy who was born nearby this location in the 17th century. What you see is a bronze of Spinoza in a cloak, which includes parakeets from far away places mixed with native sparrows. The intermingling of birds symbolises multicultural society of the city of Amsterdam. The statue stands upon a terrazzo platform with an engraving of his name. There is an information plaque nearby with information related to Spinoza as well as this monument. This is worth a brief reading when viewing.
