(b) Sculpture the ancient man

As a NewYorker I catapulted myself to Paris, though my parents disagreed, but I knew that though American, Europe was the home of my origins.

It was a very fruitful time, where I was studying intensively and in the meantime making my first sculptures. Filiform exoskeletons of ancient man.

That’s how my study of the essence of man began, from myth.
