Since 1954 on the Coolsingel-side of the Holbeinhuis building there is a great mosaic from artist Louis de Roode. The art work combines two cities that are connected to the Rhine river. Above Erasmus you see his birthplace Rotterdam (Roterodamum) and under him you see the city of Basel where he died. In between you see Erasmus on his horse, like the way he travelled from Naples towards England when he got the idea for his famous Praise of Folly.
