Dichter bij de hemel ga je levend echt niet komen

As a follow up to the artwork adjacent to this one, underneath the viaduct, this mural is a dedication to the stadium of Feyenoord Rotterdam, 'de Kuip'. 

On the left side of the artwork you can see the stadium, if you look over the wall this mural is on you will see the actual stadium. The rest of the mural is covered in quotes that have been spoken about the stadium over many years by players, press, opponents and others. Before the artwork was made, fans of the club could send in famous quotes they wanted to see on the wall by e-mail.

The quote at the top 'Dichter bij de hemel ga je levend echt niet komen' translates to 'Alive you will not get closer to heaven then this'. It is an outtake from the poem 'Adem in, adem zuid' (breathe in, breathe south) written after Feyenoord won the national championship in the season 2016-2017.
