Cup O’ Scorpion

Gritter Critter on the Wall, Who’s the Stingy’est of Them all?

Easy does it on a Sunday morning with a hot tub of soya foam together with a double shot of espresso. But hold on to your seats folks, we’re in for a ride… Entering Cafe Du Cap near the Bilderdijkstraat in Amsterdam, one almost feels as if they’re entering an Indiana Jones movie.

In the back of the Cafe one finds big comfy fluffy coaches with pillows you’d like to soak in. But be aware for there is danger everywhere: The Scorpion nest is watching you. On the wall they inventively and creatively decorated it with moss and millions plastic golden scoprions. A unique and arty farty touch if you ask me!

The critters are screwed against a large panel covered in thick green moss and give the room a nice zinger.

I’d seriously like this in my home, just for the shocker effect.
