Summary

I am Matthijs de Rijk! An Historical Reconstruction Artist from the Netherlands. I've always been driven by the urge to create and to bring to life. Build worlds of other times, lives that no one has ever experienced. It sparked my believe that creation, besides love, is one of the highest callings of humanity.

This virtue, together with my passion for history, sparked my career in history reconstruction. I started rebuilding places that had long gone, reanimated people that had long turned back to dust. I wanted people to experience what had been. Not only to show, but also to teach something about themselves. This became my mission!
