A piece of Nijntje at mrbnb!

John & Ferdi, co-hosts of mrbnb, paid a visit to the “Greetings From Utrecht'” office last week to collect a piece of Dick Bruna’s Utrecht! The statue from Mariaplaats became damaged from years of people climbing on her for photos, and it was time she had a little make over! The very talented Niels Janszen from @reszto.nl is repairing her and giving her a fresh coat of paint! Nijntje will be sealed with a special coating for protection against the elements and of course graffiti. He received the correct colours from @jacquestange who first painted Nijntje and her creator Dick Bruna on it.

“RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING I DIDN’T KNOW IF MIFFY WAS A BOY OR A GIRL.”

DICK BRUNA – CREATOR OF MIFFY

Niels makes and fixes a lot of statues, ornaments and art pieces.
He has his workshop in the building of @decreateurdotcom. Here many companies make hand made furniture, skateboards and other items. It was really great seeing so much creativity in one spot.

Here at @mrbnb we believe that Nijntje stands for inclusion, diversity and acceptance and is an incredible ambassador for our beautiful city of Utrecht. We are proud to be able to show our guests a piece of Nijntje and share this wonderful piece of Utrecht with the world! Thank you to DiDi #greetingsfromutrecht for a wonderful morning and look forward to sharing a coffee with you very soon!
