Koningsplein, Amsterdam, Netherlands
The Player was commissioned for a square where people can sit and children can play. It was placed in 2014. De Jong based The Player on a court jester, the one who could ridicule everything and everybody including the highest in power, but who was also tolerated and protected by the highest in power. That gives The Player a more or less ambiguous character.
