shown at Grimaldi Forum, Monaco, May 2004
This was my first idea when I was contacted in January 2004 and asked if I was interested in making a monument to commemorate Senna. Of course I said yes immediately. The Senna sculpture is a continuation and development of ideas I had for the monument over Ronnie Peterson I had made 6 months earlier placed in his home town Orebro, Sweden. Peterson and Senna both had extreme and exquisite speed and car control, from childhood practice, in common.
In the sculpture Ayrton Senna is carried by the waves in an upwards going spiral towards upcoming adventures.
The following people has put their handprints and signatures in relief on the base of the bronze to show honor to a man with great impact on their lives.
Hans van der Schroeff
Ron van der Heiden
