Celebrate the imagination in and around the Langezwaag church replica with statues of everyday moments, stories about the admiration and resilience of life, and surprising (re)use of materials and craftsmanship.

With its 12 metre tower, the wooden replica of the Mattheuskerk dominates the scene in what may be the quietest and most beautiful, and certainly the most hidden spot, in the village centre of Langezwaag. The outer walls of the church replica are made from canvases featuring photos of villagers combing their hair. In a tour around the church, these 16 photos tell their own story about the power of life and believing in oneself.

Inside the church replica are five art objects with horsehair inspired by the interior and use of the Mattheuskerk. Objects that invite interaction: touching, feeling, smelling, listening, discovering, and exploring.

Special educational project: Golden horses
Amid the greenery along the path to the church replica, you will find over one hundred golden horses moving through nature. These were made by primary school children from Langezwaag and Jonkersland who were helped by their parents, grandparents, neighbours, or others.
