Sshhh

Shhh goes this statue by Ger Janssen of a Dominican monk, staff in hand, admonishing children to be silent. The statue is outside the erstwhile Domani (Dominican Church), that now serves as a venue for weddings, parties, concerts and meetings. I also featured this some years back. And I have a more recent one on queue, right after the first (or was it the second) snowfall of 2019.
