Anne Woudwijk

Anne Woudwijk (1952) is a Dutch sculptor.

Much of Woudwijk's work is closely linked to the province of Friesland. For example, his statue of 'Grote Pier' stands in the center of Kimswerd. 

In 1993 a statue of a whale was placed on the pier of Holwerd. After a ferry collided with it in dense fog , the 50-tonne statue was badly damaged. The statue has since been restored and relocated on the pier of Holwerd near the landing stage for the boat to Ameland. 

His daughter Roelie Woudwijk (Drachten 1979) is also a visual artist.
