Creepy Dutch girl statue

My half-dutch friend Kip and I went to this set up "Dutch village" that's part of the week long celebration of all things Dutch. It's an honor of the 400 year anniversary of Henry Hudson coming to Manhatta and purchasing it for $24 from the Native Americans. Ah, colonialism at its best. They had all the prototypical Dutch wares: stroopwafels (maple syrup filled cookies), Gouda cheese, wooden clogs, tulips, herring sandwiches and this creepy dutch girl statue.
