The seven spherical cauldrons that once stood near the Administration Building at Costerweg now rest, slightly tilted, on the lawn behind Atlas. With black mouths agape, some of the cauldrons seem to have a quizzical look about them. The bronze patina on these cast aluminium shapes have weathered nicely over the years. Sculptor Bas Maters (1949-2006) was known for his many public sculptures and large-scale environmental projects. In this sinuous group of identical shapes, whose tilted positions lend them an air of individuality (hence the word ‘dance’ in the title) image and environment form a harmonious whole. The word ‘cauldron’ and the accompanying image is easily recognised by many agrarian cultures and is quickly associated with one of the life sciences of Wageningen University & Research.
