Nakie van Blakie / This sculpture ‘Vrede en Welvaart’ (Peace and Prosperity), by artist Piet Starreveld, was originally located in 1953 on a bank building at the Blaak. But since 1979 this sculpture has been moved to another bank building at the Coolsingel. The nakedness of the woman figure caused the Rotterdammers to name her ‘Naked from the Blaak’, which rhymes in Dutch, Nakie van Blakie. Since the relocation this nickname is no longer in common use.
