I have posted a photo taken outside Mandela's house (now museum really). Next to it lives an artist/sculptor and his co-artists. I had a long conversation with him about inspiration,creativity, artistic independence or vision and salesmanship. The figures you see are quite solid and represent various day to day occupations in towns and villages and from various parts of the country.
I remember that the figures are paper-mache but much sturdier. I found out that one component in the mixture was porridge!
I have read yesterday that Nelson Mandela has been readmitted to hospital and is unable to speak. The world is losing its heroes. All that is left is mostly posturing megalomaniacs in charge of nations.

Napolju pada veliki sneg, prava zimska idila.

I like the POV you have chosen to capture this shot; the figures are well seen, as if in a progression, and the colours are attractive.

Hello Klaudio - I've not seen a picture of this before and I find it totally fascinating and the 'cartoon-ish' figures are superb. I love the brilliant colours and various poses. A fine topical shot. TFS and warm regards rosemary

pročitao sam tvoju notu, pročitao opet tvoj Intro, sve sa interesovanjem. A fotka mi je legla jer ima za temu hranjenje duše. Ovakvih motiva oko mene je nedovoljno i uvek tražim više, nešto što je stvoreno samo za dušu. Mislim da danas ljudi nisu tako siromašni (imaju automobile, električne uređaje i šta sve još), ali toliko se zaboravlja na dušu, kao da je prevelika oskudica. Da bi me dobro razumeo, budi siguran da bih vrlo rado živeo u Diznilendu. Vrlo mi je drago da si se sreo sa ovakvom scenom i hvala ti za nesebičnost.
