Musk Rat by Florentijn Hofman Nieuwerkerk aan den Ijssel 2004 32 x 8 x 12 meters Wood, thatch and metal wire The village of Nieuwerkerk aan den IJssel is located at the very lowest point in Holland (6,86 meters below sea level). It is amazing how water is being controlled here by waterworks and dykes. The musk rat (ondatra zibethicus) supposedly is the biggest threat to dykes because of its digging into them and therefor the ‘most wanted’ animal in The Netherlands.
