Not sure when his 'head' was installed, but I found this a couple of weeks ago. It's a pity he's positioned in such a strange way - at the edge of the tables, looking at nothing in particular. (He's somewhere between the far left pillar and the red umbrella, looking further left here.) Knowing Eelco, he probably would have loved to be put right in the middle of the tables, or at least right outside the Cafe door. Maybe I'll ask him the next time I see him.
I was listening to his ex-wife Christine's interview on National Radio, and found that in the 60's Chez Eelco used to host intimate theatre and low budget movies as well as musical gigs and art displays. What a funky, truly Nelson kind of place it must have been! (This link will stay alive until around October 27.)
