Sculpture in Red Marble
Juliet, in red marble from Verona. The marble from the town where a young couple of the Montague and Capulet families had to die for their love. My Julia has closed eyes and a mouth ready for a kiss.

Greta, in a piece of white marble from Italy, picked from a quarry and which then lay for many years in the pile of stones in my studio. I start to bring her out. I think she looks a bit like my mother, have described my mother as a mixture of Greta Garbo, Rod Stewart and Barbra Streisand… Here she came anyway, with as much integrity and beauty as Greta Garbo.
