statue of invisible musician

(Permanent Link)
Hi, I came across this via the link in Livredor's LJ. I hope you don't mind a random person commenting.

I really loved your account of Amsterdam, but one thing left me utterly mystified -- the statue of the invisible musician. Is this some kind of weird Dutch Emperor's New Clothes thing? Or is it actually a statue of an invisble musician? How does that work anyway? Have you got photographs of said statue? If so, please show, and satisfy my curiosity.

Incidentally (referring back to the beginning of the post), I've always thought Glasgow was a city full of spontaneously nice people, as well. They call you hen and randomly give you contraband cigarettes and smuggled booze, and the pub near the bus station has a breakfast deal where they serve a pint and a sandwich for a quid (well they used to anyway). There's also deep fried pizzas, but I think we should gloss over that. Glasgow is officially a Nice Place, two independent witnesses can't be wrong!

Hello, nice to meet you. LOL -- I was expecting someone to ask about the musician, but no-one else did. I don't know what it may have been intended to depict, but what it was was a statue that at first glance appeared to be a statue of a musician, but on closer inspection proved to be a statue of a musician's low hat, long mac, shoes, and violin :) We were enchanted, and I said "Wow, I'm going to blog that I saw a statue of an invisible musician, and I wonder what people will think I mean" :)

Ooh, thanks. The statue sounds pretty cool. Thanks for deboggling my mind.
