Two sculptures placed at the same time, not far from each other. This applies to the Vaandeldrager (standard-bearer) by Niek van Leest and Sparen en Spelen (saving and playing) by Toon Grassens on the Heuvel in Lieshout. On 18 May 1990, the sculptures became visible to the residents of Lieshout. On that date, Toon Vermeltfoort took his leave as director of the Rabobank, but it was also the date when the bank reopened after major renovation. Vermeltfoort has been an important person when it comes to works of art in public spaces in Lieshout and Mariahout. A cousin of Vermeltfoort served as a model for the children, the boy holding a skateboard and the girl showing her savings book. The booklet says that it is from 'Marina'. On the second page, the name Vermeltfoort is mentioned. The question remains as to how long the sculpture will remain at its current location. The Heuvel in Lieshout is probably going to change dramatically and the old-Rabobank building, which has not been used as such for years, is going to disappear.
