the color of my country

"searching for eternity"
The surroundings of my childhood, the multitude of species of the sea, the shores of my country with their caverns and caves partially still don't exist any more today.
In my mind, these afterglows have survived, have reached a lifetime beyond the one nature allowed them.
Out of the longing for the sea of my childhood, shapes evoking the shells and grots have been formed, to make these memories tangible for the viewer.
