Pieke oet de Stokstraot (1996) is a sculpture by Nicolas van Ronkensteins, situated in one of Maastricht central streets. Maastricht is nowadays a lively town, with a well-known shopping district in the centre, but it used to be the core of industrialisation in the Netherlands.
Pieke out de Stokstraot is a fictional character of Bèr Hollewijn’s 1976 novel “Pieke from the Stokstraatkwartie”. In the novel, Hollewijn describes the social and political conditions of the city of Maastricht in the 1930s, when Maastricht was a heavily industrial town. Pieke, the novel’s main character, is nowadays a popular character, known by the citizens of Maastricht as the typical boy living in the Stokstraat before the area had been renovated. The statue thus represents the old social character of Stokstraat, when the street was lived by working class people and characterised by poverty. The area had been polished between 1960 and 1970.
