Thousands of twinkling pebbles have been incorporated into the
asphalt like fragments from Van Gogh's painting of The Starry

result of two artists 'meeting' each other in the place where Van
Gogh once lived and where the artist Roosegaarde created an unusual
experience for visitors with his techno-poetry.
