At the old jetty opposite the docking area of the Raveel boats, a female figure is floating on the water. Her body is hollow and there are gaping holes where her arms, legs and head should be. Depending on the tides the sculpture is either just above or below the waterline; the seawater churns its way through the sculpture. In his work artist Manfred Erjautz (b. 1966, Graz) often explores the contrast between the internal and the external, and the mechanisms of society.

His second bronze sculpture is on display at Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-ter-Duinenkerk: Aqua e sole, from the series Soletti Giacometti.
